Recently director of bands Alex Kaminsky connected with President Emeritus Dr. Charles Menghini for a conversation on Dr. Menghini's podcast BAND TALK. Alex shares his journey, his mission to prepare great music teachers through his work and why VanderCook is such a special place to learn how to become a music teacher.

 

VanderCook College of Music is thrilled to announce that our

The mission of the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) is to enrich Chicago’s artistic vitality and cultural vibrancy. To support this overarching mission, the Cultural Grants Program’s goal is simple: to serve as a catalyst to foster a robust, healthy arts community where artists, nonprofit arts and culture organizations and creative industries thrive. In 2020, DCASE will provide more than $2.7 million annually in direct funding for Chicago’s arts community through its Cultural Grants Program. Designed to reach artists, creatives, and nonprofit arts and culture organizations across Chicago, DCASE Cultural Grants provide operating funds and project support for nonprofits and project specific funding for individual artists.
