About Us

MSSL is a collective of music students of diverse ages and backgrounds dedicated to serving our community through music. As a student-run organization, we strive to promote harmony and empathy through music while also supporting music education, particularly for underserved communities. Annually, we organize the Daniel Pearl World Music Days Concert, perform in nursing homes, and host the Practice-a-thon, a fundraiser to raise money for music-related organizations. In the past, we have worked with the Harmony Project, the Neighborhood Music School, the Academy of Music for the Blind, the Orlando West Brass Band in South Africa, and more!
