- Did you know that Arts Horizons was originally called “Festival of Music?” Arts Horizons was founded in 1978 by John Devol, trumpet player, music educator and parent. John played in the orchestra of A Chorus Line for the entire 15-year run of the show and, as he sat in the pit night after night, he realized the importance of bringing quality music to children. He got together with fellow Broadway musicians and formed Festival Brass, a lively, interactive music assembly program that taught students about the brass family of instruments. In 1995, Festival of Music became Arts Horizons, a full-service arts-in-education organization. Now entering our fourth decade, we reach more than 350,000 students and teachers every year. Looking back over the past four decades, John Devol says, "We are committed to fostering the development of the whole person by integrating the arts into the educational experience, and we endeavor to instill in people of all ages and abilities the knowledge of their own creativity. When I visit schools and senior centers and see faces light up, I know that it's all been worthwhile." It is a New Horizon for Arts Horizons. Help us to continue transforming lives through the arts. Even the smallest gift of $10, combined with other donations, can make a difference in the lives of those we serve.

We are fortunate to have veterans Larry Washington and Cynthia "Lady Rose" Roberson as part of our incredible roster of AH Teaching Artists. One of our longtime teaching artists specializing in percussion, Larry was stationed on the USS Dixon AS-37 submarine tender at Point Loma, CA from 1973-1976. Lady Rose, whose @rittabook literacy program has been a hit with our youngest students, served as a Military Police Sergeant in the US Army from 1988-1994. Please consider a tax-deductible donation to Arts Horizons to help us and our AH Teaching Artists to continue transforming lives through the arts. Even the smallest gift of $10, combined with other donations, can make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
