ZUMIX Closes Its 25th Anniversary Year With A Fundraiser By Boston DJs

[Boston, MA – February 21, 2017] “It’s been a busy and rich quarter century for the creative youth development East Boston nonprofit ZUMIX. Founded in 1991, its leaders set out to empower youth through music to make strong positive change in their lives, their communities, and the world. At the 25 year mark,  ZUMIX celebrates many milestones including serving over 10,000 youth and becoming the “second home” for many; winning the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award in 2011, presented by First Lady Michelle Obama; expanding into its 3-floor Firehouse location which houses its many types of music instruction, a state of the art recording studio and an all ages live concert venue; and in September 2016, after 10 years of streaming its youth radio station online, launched 94.9 ZUMIX Radio, a community radio station. Further, last year Boston Landmark’s Orchestra commissioned Grammy-nominated composer Gonzalo Grau to work with ZUMIX students over 8 months, culminating with a live concert performance on Boston’s Hatch Shell.
