The conservatory won three Music for All Advocacy-in-Action-Awards for exemplary music initiatives:
Music for All is a nonprofit educational organization. The Advocacy in Action Awards recognize and celebrate the commitment of school administrators, community leaders, teachers, and parents who believe in music education and are advocating to ensure that it is part of a comprehensive education for all children.
The Innovative Fundraising Award recognized the school’s successful effort to raise funds so that every student in the Tarpon Springs Leadership Conservatory for the Arts was able to perform in the 2022 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
One of the key reasons the band was selected to participate in the parade was because of its production of "The Hamilton Project." The Pandemic Perseverance Award recognized the band’s extraordinary accomplishments in producing the performance, which resulted in sold-out shows and thousands of views on YouTube. ABC Action News did a story about the impressive project.
The booster organization and parental support are crucial components of the conservatory's success.
