Blues SchoolHouse Spring 2023

Blues SchoolHouse made a comeback in Boston to the tune of nearly 3,000 students in grades 5-12 from across 38 Boston Schools.

Blues SchoolHouse returned live for the first time since 2019 and rocked the roof off the Boston House of Blues; thanks to Music Drives Us, Crossroads Presents, and Citizens House of Blues Boston for your continued partnership in this program! Nearly 3,000 kids joined us for an epic field trip this spring, singing and dancing through Blues SchoolHouse. The show chronicles the story of blues from its beginnings in Africa, its evolution into the blues as we know it, and its continued influence on popular music & culture today all through music performed by our spectacular Blues SchoolHouse band.

76% of students were BIPOC youth

“Being a child who attended the program in its developmental stage, who is now performing in the same program, as a professional musician and entertainer. I can personally attest to how powerful and influential this program is! To see the faces of children light up… most seeing their first ever, CONCERT! It’s an honor and privilege, to have this great responsibility of educating and empowering the next generation of artists and creators!” – Zachary Rochester, Blues School House Bassist
