Building Bridges

Teaching students about diversity, bullying, healthy choices, tolerance, respect and environmental responsibility.


6th Annual Building Bridges Program

The music of three-time Grammy Award winner Tom Chapin serves as the platform for the Building Bridges Program.  Tom Chapin’s music is a powerful tool that teachers can integrate into their existing curriculum during the school year to teach life lessons about: diversity, anti-violence, healthy choices, respect, and environmental responsibility through the songs.

The program culminates with the students being transported to The Higley Center for Performing Arts on March 2, 2015 to experience a live concert performance starring Tom Chapin.  The program, concert, and transportation are provided free to the participating classrooms. 

The Foundation for Arts, Culture & Education at the HCPA secures community sponsors who believe in Arts Education so the program expenses are completely underwritten. To be a Building Bridges Sponsor or sign-up a classroom to participate email Debbie at
