ABOUT GREENWICH HOUSE OF MUSIC: Greenwich House started in 1902 when Mary Kingsbury Simkhovitch along with Jacob Riis, Carl Schurz, Felix Adler, and other social reformers came together and incorporated the Greenwich House Settlement. Its mission was to improve the living conditions among the predominantly immigrant population in Greenwich Village, at that time New York's most congested neighborhood.
From its beginning, Greenwich House committed itself to the arts as a dynamic stimulus for cultural enrichment and individual growth. The reputation of Greenwich House's arts curricula has been shaped by its mission and the past and present participation of people such as Eleanor Roosevelt, Mrs. Gertrude Payne Whitney, Daniel Chester French, John Sloan, James Fraser, Guy Pene du Bois, Jackson Pollock, Kirk Douglas, Marion Rous, Leonard Warren, Julius Rudel, Ossip Gabrilowitsch, Henry Cowell, Edgar Varese and Peter Voulkos.
