We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of NYC Council Speaker Corey Johnson and the Members of the NYC Council, who appropriate their own discretionary funding, as well as awarding their select CASA grants for cultural after-school initiatives, to Midori & Friends. These public funds have enabled us to provide NYC school children with musical experiences that otherwise would not have been possible. Special thanks also to Commissioner Tom Finkelpearl, Department of Cultural Affairs; Honorable Jimmy Van Bramer, Cultural Affairs Committee Chair; and Honorable Julissa Ferreras, Finance Committee Chair; for their leadership in championing the arts in New York City.
