Music Moves Us Forward

25 years!

In 25 years Music Forward has invested $25 million into 1,000,000 young people’s lives. We are moved to champion and advocate for the next generation to succeed and lead.

Music moves us to remember our legacy manifesting a core belief envisioned by House of Blues-Unity in Diversity.

Music moves us to deliver one of the nation’s top music industry programs and provide unmatched access to an expansive network of industry insiders so youth thrive, mentors win, and the industry is enriched with diverse voices.

Music moves us forward to envision a future where all young people have opportunity and access to redefine what’s possible in the music industry.

Music Forward invites you to track our 25th anniversary celebration as we share stories and updates online, rollout exclusive auctions and offers, and activate festivities and special events at House of Blues venues across the country. Music Forward’s 25th campaign runs 25 weeks and has a $250,000 goal that will help us continue to grow our impactful programs nationwide. Thanks to generous contributions from City National, EPAM, Go Vision, Mastercard, Oracle and Visa, we are off to a promising start to meet our quarter-million dollar goal and invite you to help us meet this 25th anniversary milestone by making a donation to accelerate opportunities for the next generation of leaders and innovators.

Follow the celebration on our socials and subscribe to our newsletter for exclusive updates! And by the way, click around to check out our new website 🙂

Indeed we’ve come a long way in 25 years! We are committed to using music to move our collective humanity forward and invite you to join us as we transform lives, inspire leaders and influence culture.

How does music move you?
