PLAYING WITH TRADITION
Playing With Tradition is the name of Freight & Salvage’s new education initiative, which leads middle school students through a series of immersive visits from our teaching artists. The program uses contemporary music as the doorway through which young people can identify connections with other styles, genres, musical eras, and cultures.
