CSU provides free cellos and cello lessons during the school year to Boston urban youth between the ages of six to seventeen. It is supported by a dedicated Board of Directors, staff, teaching assistants from Berklee College of Music, and parents.
In August 2018, the Massachusetts Cultural Council awarded CSU a three-year Creative Youth Development Grant. In addition, CSU is the recipient of a multi-year grant from the Johnson String Project to help underwrite the cost of the free cellos CSU provides its students.
