The Heights Center’s Musical Opportunities Supporting the Arts In Our Community (MOSAIC) program is an El Sistema-inspired, daily music education program that serves nearly 50 elementary and middle school children from the Harlem Heights community. It provides free instrumental music instruction and numerous performance opportunities at The Heights Center and throughout our community.

Our MOSAIC program also offers Middle School String and Wind Ensembles and a Youth Orchestra.

MOSAIC empowers students to aspire for excellence in everything they do, from their academic classes to MOSAIC lessons. Familial and community bonds are strengthened, and our students are taught to become leaders by being highly ambitious at every opportunity.
