Art Saves Us: Beyond the Noise is calling out all the young and gifted musicians. In our community, music cannot remain silent. If you possess a thirst for crafting music or have any interest in developing your confidence, leadership, and/or networking skills, then join us this summer.
Beyond the Noise is an added chapter to the Art Saves Us program at the Center for Hmong Arts & Talent (CHAT), dedicated to serving and mentoring highly motivated high school students in creating music. Beyond the Noise’s mission is to indulge and nourish gifted individuals through musical sessions designed by local artists, such as vocals, guitar, piano, and percussion. This Summer, sessions will be taught by Panghoua Thao, Nao Lor, and Nathan Her.
Our service is completely free of charge to participants. Instruments are provided, but limited. Healthy snacks are provided for students throughout the day. Transportation is also provided for students residing in the St. Paul/Frogtown area (please see the transportation form for more information.)
