Advocate – “to speak of or write in favor of”

MEANYC was formed in 1989 by dedicated teachers and administrators as a vehicle to keep music alive in the five boroughs of New York City. A vast reservoir of experience and expertise exists within our membership. As advocates for “the pursuit of quality music education for all students”, we are continually working to promote and improve music education in New York City. MEANYC has been involved in important arts legislation on both the local and state levels to achieve this goal.
Each March, we join with NYSSMA on JOE SUGAR DAY in ALBANY (March 3, 2014) to meet with our legislators and advocate for music education.

JOE SUGAR DAY in ALBANY
MARCH 6, 2017
Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form. —Plato
