Jenny Gronemeyer, Julia Bell – Classical Connections

Date grant awarded: 08/07/2017

Founded in January 2015 by two Indiana University Jacobs School of Music students, Classical Connections partners music students with local organizations to bring the joy of music to underserved community members.

Classical Connections operates under the advisement of Dr. Alain Barker, Director of Music Entrepreneurship and Career Development at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. In addition to Dr. Barker’s mentorship, the Jacobs School of Music’s Project Jumpstart has supported many of Classical Connections’ endeavors.

With three active community partnerships and over 100 musician members, Classical Connections hosts an average of three performances each month. They are constantly growing within their Bloomington chapter and look forward to expanding to additional conservatories in the coming years!
