Behind the biggest films, there is always a great film score! Guitars Over Guns musicians will be performing tunes from some of their favorite soundtracks in our next cross-city showcase. While you enjoy the music, feel free to slip into character by donning a costume of your favorite film heroes or characters!
Guitars Over Guns is a Miami-based 501(c)(3) non-profit that offers students from disadvantaged backgrounds a powerful combination of music education and strong mentoring relationships with professional musicians to help them overcome hardship, find their voice, and reach their potential as tomorrow’s leaders. Guitars Over Guns endeavors to create safe spaces for youth to express themselves through music, offering a supportive environment that empowers them to make positive choices at school, at home, and in their communities. Established in 2008, the organization has grown to include a satellite program in Chicago, and has served more than 3,000 students over the past decade.
The Guitars Over Guns program is made possible with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners. Their program is funded in part by The Children’s Trust. The Children’s Trust is a dedicated source of revenue established by voter referendum to improve the lives of children and families in Miami-Dade County by making strategic investments in their future. #ChooseYourSound @guitarsoverguns
