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 will provide consistent programming for students at Whitman Elementary School in Pontiac beginning in January of 2017—including bucket and brass classes.
The program will receive sustained funding (from a Kirk in the Hills Capital Campaign) for the first three years with the vision that it will then become its own non-profit organization.
