Artists in Residence

Artist-In-Residence Year 2 & Music Program Support:
Castlemont High School 2013-14


The Elevate Castlemont Music Project is a collaborative effort to keep music alive and vibrant in the underserved East Oakland High School. The project brings Artists-In-Residence (professional Bay Area-based vocalist-musicians Leah Tysee & Reneé Wilson), Hip-Hop dance instruction from Oakland’s Destiny Arts Center Teachers, as well as other inspirational guests and visiting music mentors, into Castlemont classrooms on a regular basis to help augment the existing music curriculum.
