All Score Urbana is a free-to-the-public community music composition program that engages with Champaign-Urbana’s residents in familiar public spaces. It offers both children-oriented and all ages events, with an emphasis on a workshop environment and facilitating resources for community members, including access to the insights and on-site performance feedback from local performers. Rather than treating composition as a solitary act, young and new composers are able to work collaboratively with performers, composers, and other teaching artists from their community and explore creating their own connections and networks for future projects.
All Score Urbana has received financial support throughout the years from the Urbana Arts and Culture Program’s Urbana Arts Grants and Arts In The Schools Grant, the College Music Society Community Engagement Seed Grant, the UIUC Theodore Presser Graduate Award, and from Urbana High School Orchestras. We continue to pursue opportunities to fund honorariums teaching artists and resources for people we work with to keep providing these free-to-the-public opportunities. If you would like to help please contact us about any partnerships and funding opportunities at email@example.com.
