Posted by Jessica Guzman in Blog with No Comments

Good news! The Boston Globe recently announced that they’ve reinstated one of their community programs. Called GRANT (Globe Readers and Non-profits Together), the program invites Globe subscribers to help nonprofits earn free advertisements in the paper.

You may receive an email about the initiative. If so, just click on the link. If you’re a subscriber but haven’t gotten an email, you can click here. You’ll need your subscriber number, which is on your home delivery invoice (or get it by calling 1-888-MY-GLOBE (694-5623)).

We’d love for you to choose us as your designee. If you do, you should type in our name like this: HYDE SQUARE TASK FORCE, INC. (No need to click the link to view the whole list of organizations unless you want to. We’re number 636.) The last field can be left blank since we’re on the Globe’s list.

The more dollars we earn through this program, the larger the ad space we’ll get! Thanks for helping us out!

MIC at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

Posted by Jessica Guzman in Blog with No Comments

Hyde Square Task Force’s Musicians in Community (MIC) performed at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum on Friday, February 24th, as part of the museum’s school vacation week line-up.

 Youth sang and played covers from some of their favorite artists. The eclectic set list included Celia Cruz, Adele, John Legend, Alessia Cara, Ben Harper, and Hiatus Kaiyote. They performed two 30-minute sets.

The teens received rousing applause. Afterward audience members complimented the young musicians. One patron shared that she was impressed by how beautifully they played. Many members of MIC had never picked up an instrument or sung a note before joining the leadership team at HSTF. Music Programs Coordinator Nick Perez works closely with them as they achieve mastery.
