Bloomingdale School of Music has announced that it has received a grant award of $10,000 from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) to support the recovery of the nonprofit arts and culture sector.

The grant will be used to support Bloomingdales’s mission of making music education accessible to all.

“We are so thrilled to receive this validation of our commitment and our work,” said Executive Director of the Bloomingdale School of Music Erika Atkins in an official press statement. “As we’ve gradually returned to sharing spaces for in-person learning, I would like to commend the commitment of Bloomingdale’s students and faculty to gather in-person and virtually, to connect together and to share the joy of music. I am so proud to be a part of this community and I’m looking forward to the ways in which this grant will allow us to serve and grow even further.”

“The arts have long been a critical sector in our economy, and as we continue to rebuild a stronger New York, it’s essential we do all we can to help this industry thrive once again,” said Governor of the State of New York Kathy Hochul. “These awardees represent the best of what New York’s vibrant communities have to offer and with this funding in hand, they will be able to not only continue their creative and inspiring work but help spur revitalization in their own backyard as well.”
