Brave Troubadours is a live online concert and educational series, showcasing frontline social change artists and communities who are partnering with Music to Life. This episode highlights Music to Life’s Musician Changemaker Accelerator (MCA) Academy students, our class of 2023.

The MCA is an 8-month incubator and training opportunity - made possible by generous support from the Mellon Foundation - that empowers musicians across geographies, genres and generations to actualize their innovative ideas for music-driven programs.  

In this fast-paced 60-minute episode of Brave Troubadours, each MCA participant will share their distinct vision for positive community change, as facilitated by Music to Life’s Director of Programs, Verónica Pérez-Picasso.  You’ll be inspired by their talent, testimonials and music videos, all of which will refresh your faith in a kinder, more unified world, through the power of music. 

The show is free so we welcome your donations which underwrite the work of these musicians and help us connect them with the resources they need to realize their goals and aspirations as change agents. Please give as generously as you are able. Thank you.
