Mockingbird Sessions Announced!!

The all-volunteer Mockingbird Foundation is proud to commemorate 25 years of providing music education to America’s young people by presenting The Mockingbird Sessions, a three-day celebration of music, education, and community.  This free event - livestreaming on Fans.live June 4, 5, and 6 - will bring together a diverse group of musicians, educators, and foundations to promote music education throughout America.

Thanks to the efforts of dozens of people and multiple studios across the U.S., Mockingbird Sessions includes artists such as Marco Benevento, Joe Russo, and Christian McBride in a once-in-a-lifetime quartet with harpist Mikalea Davis; The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio; The Yonder Mountain String Trio; Paul Hoffman (from Greensky Bluegrass); and many others in unique pairings and groups that were curated specifically for this event.

Masterclasses will also be presented, showcasing the artistic philosophies of various artists and instruments, like the bass panel featuring Reed Mathis, Karina Rykman, and Chris Wood and hosted by Dr. Stephanie Jenkins (noted host of the Phish Studies Conference in 2019).  Testimonials by grantees will be sporadically shared during the weekend as well, and a limited edition print from artist Cory Rowe will be available for purchase.

And we're hoping other Phish fans, especially our community here at Phish.net, can help spread the word on social. We're using the hashtag #mbird25, of course, and we've created two URL shortcuts: mbird.org/mbird25 is an evolving splash page for attendees, and mbird.org/25 goes to a conventional press release for journalists. (Please send it to a couple; you might be surprised when they get back to you!)

This is a year full of milestones for Mockingbird. The 10,000th donation came on January 1st, and disbursements will surprass 500 grants and $2M total distributed sometime this summer. We appreciate everyone's ongoing support for music education. Grants for the 26th competitive round will be announced this June.

2021 Delucia Award Nominations Welcomed

The Mockingbird Foundation is proud to announce the continuation of the DeLucia Awards, recognizing outstanding examples in music education. Established in 2004, and previously awarded in 2010, 2015, 2017, and 2019, the DeLucia Awards honor Mockingbird founder Craig DeLucia, and seek to recognize demonstrated passion for teaching music through the use of unconventional genres, methods, instruments, environments, and/or other aspects of music education.

The awards are administered by educator, saxophonist, recreational cellist, and Mockingbird board member Matt Sexauer, assisted by a fantastic panel of musicians and educators. The process begins with an online form, which opens today, April 1st. Nominations close this year on April 25, at 5 p.m. EDT. Announcement is anticipated for mid-May.

As in previous instances, there may be up to five DeLucia Award recipients in a given year, with the first place recipient awarded the DeLucia Prize, a monetary complement of $1,000. This year for the first time, four runners up will be awarded $250. The recipient(s) will have demonstrated a passion for music education such as by teaching in an exceptional, innovative, or unique manner; impacting their communities in a substantial way; or using unconventional techniques, discourse, or concepts in their roles as music educators.

The Mockingbird Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit run entirely by volunteers, supports music education for children by fundraising through Phish-related projects. Organized by Phish fans in 1996, formally incorporated in 1997, and celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the Foundation has since distributed over $1,800,000 through 492 grants in all 50 states.

The Foundation is also the leading provider of historical information about Phish and its music, having cultivated intellectual property through www.phish.net since 1994 and having published three editions of the popular books The Phish Companion: A Guide to the Band and Their Music.
