Promote global understanding cultural awareness and academic achievement by providing performances instruction and professional development in multicultural music to at risk youth.The population in the United States and in many other countries in the world is extremely diverse. We have the responsibility to examine and discuss what unites us as a country and as a global village. We should be awared of the common values we share in this international scenario comprised of so many ethnic groups and beliefs. The use of multicultural music can help with this unifying vision. Nevertheless the status of world music in instrumental settings is minimum or almost non existent. In the professional performance aspect the presentation of multicultural music in orchestras or small chamber ensembles is not very common. Furthermore the creation of multicultural music for orchestras is rarely promoted by presenting organizations or by the administration of established symphonic organizations. Moreover if multicultural performances are presented information about its origins and its cross cultural relationship is not usually provided to the audiences. In the educational aspect the MMG supports the schools to comply with the national educational reform which includes the application of multicultural music instruction. Unfortunately this topic is not usually included in the teachers training curricula and consequently in the schools music programs especially in instrumental music instruction for symphonic settings. Therefore in order to improve the aforementioned situations the MMG provides music instruction professional development and multicultural performances in the symphonic setting with a research component which provides information about the origins and development of different musical genres.
