Music in Schools Initiative

Photos: Music in Schools and Class of 1957

While in town for their 55th reunion, members of the Yale College Class of 1957 had lunch with young students from New Haven's John C. Daniels School. The two groups joined together to celebrate YSM's Music in Schools Initiative, which is supported by the class.

The young musicians performed for the Class of ’57 and then distributed cards expressing their gratitude for the Class's generosity. Addressing the Class at the event, Associate Dean Michael Yaffe said, "You, the members of the Class of ’57, are to be congratulated for your vision from more than ten years ago. You found out that music makes a difference in people’s lives, and you have helped the Yale School of Music to prove it in many ways." Click HERE to read a longer excerpt from Yaffe's talk.
