A Spotlight Celebration is a large scale Music Monday event which unites students, teachers, community members and arts organizations to highlight the importance of music education. These events generally include performances by professional musicians, student and youth ensembles, as well as speakers and presenters who believe in the power of music.
Spotlight celebrations are developed by the Coalition, in partnership with local music advocates and community organizations. Local politicians and prominent community members often participate, and media coverage helps bring our message of advocacy to a wider audience. Spotlight Celebrations rotate throughout the country, taking place in different cities each year.
