The GLASSMEN provide opportunities that promote and develop life skills and personal enrichment through education, participation and performance.
The GLASSMEN organization strives to achieve three basic goals. The first goal is to attract, train and further the artistic skills of young people. The second is to teach life skills to young people, including money management, conflict resolution, teamwork, leadership, and time management. These skills, along with the summer touring experience, forever change the lives of the participants. The program produces not only dedicated and talented artists, but also self-sufficient, confident young people who have seen the positive effects that their behavior and talents have created. The third and final goal is to give a diverse group of people the opportunity to not only hear wonderful music and witness an extraordinary performance, but also to give them the opportunity to become a member of this very special organization.
