LIFE's Impact

L.I.F.E. provides artistic resources, opportunities, positive experiences, and mentoring to help students develop the qualities and skills they need to live up to their full potential.  In so doing, L.I.F.E. develops the next generation of community leaders, one student at a time, who can take what they’ve learned to initiate future change within and beyond their own neighborhoods. 

Students of LIFE have worked with the STL Symphony, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, St. Louis Children's Choir, Southeast Missouri Music Academy, Performing Arts Abroad-Costa Rica, Orchestrating Diversity and the Michigan Philharmonic.

When you give to LIFE, you help produce new leaders for the world's leading orchestras, opera companies, and arts organizations. You help create a new generation of outstanding performers, teachers, and arts administrators. And you help stimulate the love and understanding of music worldwide. 

We could not provide world-class opportunities to our students without a generous community.
