LETTER FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

This year’s Annual Report spotlights the deep, enduring musical relationships that the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music makes possible and sustains over time. 

With a 127-year history of providing New Yorkers with musical opportunities and experiences, BKCM’s roots run deep. Today, our organization is stronger than ever because we prioritize and invest in lasting connections that blossom and strengthen over time: Relationships between students and teachers, which endure as students transition from childhood into adolescence and young adulthood. Between BKCM and our highly skilled faculty members, who stay with us for years, and sometimes decades, even as their own performance careers flourish. Between music therapists and clients, who come to feel like family as they navigate growth and discovery, challenges and breakthroughs.

Onsite, our building is a hub for creativity, collaboration and connection. Families and neighbors gather in our community garden, which is open to the public seven days a week. During off-peak hours, musicians from 128 zip codes converge on our studios, which we rent at deeply discounted rates to support emerging artists.

Offsite, our presence in 80-plus schools, senior centers and other settings across the five boroughs is rooted in authentic, lasting partnerships. At PS 24 in Flushing, Queens, our Music Partners teaching artists have enriched the lives of more than a generation of students over the course of 27 years. The incredible success of the BKCM Community Music Center in Cypress Hills/East New York, Brooklyn, was possible because our relationship with Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation began 20 years before we launched the CMC, now in its second year.

Our commitment to forging relationships with and among members of New York City’s rich tapestry of communities has propelled our evolution into a major presenting institution. The 200-plus free or low-cost festivals, concerts, cultural celebrations and other events we host each year draw nearly 15,000 New Yorkers—enriching, inspiring and connecting communities citywide while supplying musicians with a steady stream of paid gigs.

BKCM envisions a world where every New Yorker has access to lifelong music instruction, music therapy and hands-on musical experiences—regardless of their financial circumstances, skill, ability or age. With your partnership, we’re working to make this a reality.

Chad Cooper

Executive Director

LETTER FROM THE BOARD CHAIR

As the stories highlighted in our 2023 Annual Report illustrate, BKCM is not your average music school. In fact, there’s nothing average about this remarkable institution—from our enduring partnerships with community organizations across the five boroughs to our focus on nurturing lifelong musical relationships. 

These relationships don’t happen by accident. They’re the fruits of BKCM’s intentional decisions: To invest in attracting and retaining faculty members of the highest caliber. To support our students and clients as their skills, challenges and financial circumstances evolve. To delight, inspire and connect more New Yorkers each year, with an ever-expanding roster of events.

My own relationship with BKCM began in 2019, when I enrolled my four-year-old son in the Suzuki Program. Each time I set foot in the building or attended an offsite (or online) event, I’d discover another facet of BKCM’s work.

I learned that the students and clients who converge on our Park Slope home represent just a fraction of BKCM’s community—and that nearly three-quarters of those we serve live at or below the poverty line. I learned that BKCM operates dozens of music education programs in neighborhoods citywide, including the popular band program at my son’s elementary school. I discovered that our skilled music therapists work with clients in communities across New York, often at no cost to clients.

Fast forward to 2024. Since this is, after all, a letter from the Board Chair, it’s clear that my own connection to BKCM has grown. But there’s even more to that story. My son and I are both now CMS students (guitar for me, drums for him). He’s nine now, and still working with his first Suzuki piano teacher, Jeong-Hwa Park—who’s ushered him through the joys and challenges of learning an instrument for half his life.

BKCM’s mission is ambitious: transforming lives and building community through the expressive, educational and therapeutic powers of music. Transformation and community-building require serious, sustained investment and enormous reservoirs of energy, talent and support. BKCM has all of these ingredients, thanks to our excellent staff, faculty, leadership, Board of Trustees and Advisory Council—and the ongoing generosity of our supporters. I’m so proud of our accomplishments and can’t wait to see how BKCM, and the relationships that distinguish us, blossom in 2024.
