City Strings United's mission is to inspire and challenge children from underserved communities to develop leadership and life skills and a passion for excellence through the discipline of a music ensemble.


City Strings United was founded in 2012 on the belief that access to high-quality youth programs can create positive change in economically-strained communities and foster the social, emotional and educational development of its youth. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit youth development program, City Strings United provides free cello lessons and unique performance opportunities to six through eighteen-year-old students primarily from urban Boston. But we teach our students much more than musical skills. Our focus is on discipline, teamwork, respect, listening and accountability - all attributes that we nurture to develop the whole child.
