Visible Men Academy

Since 2018, Key Chorale has partnered with Visible Men Academy, a charter school for at-risk K-5 boys, to provide a music program and experiences for the 100+ students who would not have any formal musical experiences without our involvement. Key Chorale singers and educators conduct hands-on music activities with students during a five-week program each semester.
