Named a National Top 10 Music Organization

Charity Navigator named Settlement one of the top 10 music programs in the nation working to preserve and expand music education and access to the musical arts.

“Settlement educated me on piano and so much more: how to listen, how to cultivate a mentor, responsibility, culture, and the relationship between what I give and what I get in my individual pursuits. Settlement helped me become the artist, community member, and leader that I am today.” -Quiara Alegría Hudes, Settlement alumna and Pullitzer Prize-winning playwright
