Tina Lee Hadari ’04MM to discuss chamber music as public service


Tina Lee Hadari, a graduate of the School of Music and the founder of Music Haven, will be the featured guest speaker at the next Community Engagement Think Tank on Saturday, February 6. Music Haven is a nonprofit organization that anchors a string quartet to the urban neighborhoods of New Haven. Its resident ensemble, the Haven String Quartet, teaches tuition-free after-school string lessons to 48 youth in high-poverty neighborhoods and performs in both traditional and non-traditional venues throughout Connecticut.

This year, the Yale School of Music examines the role of community engagement in the life of professional musicians. To encourage School of Music students to explore the role of community engagement in their careers, and to identify and promote good practices in this field, the School has inaugurated a series of Saturday Seminars. Each session combines a presentation by a visiting expert with a discussion among students on topical issues affecting the field of classical music. MORE
