With contributions from individuals, grants, and school PTAs/PTOs, EISMA seeks to inspire students with a full range of musical styles, instruments, and ethnic traditions.  Visit the Evanston In-School Music Association at http://www.eismaconcerts.org/ Facebook or via email at  eismaconcerts@gmail.com
