Support K4H

 Kids 4 Harmony is a free music education program.

This program is entirely supported by grant funding, corporate support, private contributions, and partnerships with the Pittsfield Public Schools System and other organizations. Our musical instruments are mostly donated by community members, with maintenance and repairs provided by our “musical instrument angels.” If you would like to learn more about providing private support or corporate sponsorship to Kids 4 Harmony, contact Erin Sullivan, (413) 448-8281 ext. 36.

“Kids 4 Harmony is an example of how reaching into the Pittsfield community with music can bring success and pride to families and children. It’s so unique for a social services agency to house such a program, which means that families and children get support they might not otherwise have in a standalone music program. Supporting BCF’s Kids 4 Harmony program is a great way for me to blend my profession in clinical social work with my interest in Berkshire area arts and culture, and with my part-time life in the Berkshires. Carolyn Burns always keeps her eye on the prize – she has a great vision.”
