I believe that society thrives when artists prioritize the needs of their communities, so I create social harmony and opportunity through music.

"Music has helped with my confidence. My parents are immigrants from the Dominican Republic. The culture in the Dominican Republic is mostly about men going out doing things. At Play On, Philly! though, there are a lot of strong females who speak their mind. I do now, too. A boy isn’t going to hand me the medical degree I want. I’ve got to do it." - Chastidy


Play On, Philly! (POP) provides intensive music education to K-12 students, who would typically lack access, as a vehicle for life skills and academic achievement

For 2½ hours every day, students enjoy instrument instruction and ensemble practice completely tuition-free
