The Little Masters Project (LMP) is a brand-new community outreach project designed by Master Players artistic director and international concert violinist and producer Xiang Gao to benefit the children of under-served communities in the tri-state region. With the increasing crime rate in the city of Wilmington and other neighboring communities reported by the state government and public resources, LMP is designed to protect, inspire and empower the children who live in these communities. LMP will offer these children free instruments and free private music lessons during afterschool hours to challenge them, develop their self-esteem and show them the reward and beauty of playing a musical instrument. LMP will also inspire young students by providing them a once-in-a-lifetime performance opportunity to share the stage with world-class musicians, and will empower them by using their own music to change other people’s lives at the venues of Master Players community partners. These partners may include (but are not limited to) retirement homes, medical facilities, community centers, schools and libraries.
Master Players values the incomparable power of live music to illuminate, transform and heal, and treasures the positive impact that music, the universal language of our planet, has on people of all walks of life. Because we believe experiencing live music is essential for children of all backgrounds to thrive, we have an uncompromising commitment to bringing music to the next generation of Americans, including children with special needs and from less fortunate families in our local community. As an unconventional music presenter that always puts the audience first, Master Players proudly creates a stage to encourage interdisciplinary collaborations, to enable creativity, and to inspire the imaginations of non-musician artists and creative students to be fully self-expressive. By featuring future performers, Master Players keeps the work of musicians and presenters vital and ensures the continuity of music making.
