Accent Pontiac is an El Sistema-inspired music program that uses music as a vehicle for social change. The program began with a soft launch in September 2016 and has provided consistent programming for students at Whitman Elementary School in Pontiac since January of 2017—including bucket and brass classes.
The program currently receives sustained funding from Kirk in the Hills (2014 Capital Campaign) and was recently recognized as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization by the Internal Revenue Service.
