Like a lot of good ideas, ZUMIX started in someone's living room. Co-Founders Bob Grove and current Executive Director Madeleine Steczynski began with a simple principal - every child needs something to feel passionate about, and for many teens their passion is music. In the summer of 1991 they recruited 24 youth ages 8-18 to participate in a song-writing and performance program. In 1993, ZUMIX began serving the broader community with the establishment of Music in Maverick Square. The move to their current facility in 1996 enabled ZUMIX to launch Community Arts programs, welcoming local residents to intimate arts-related gatherings in a small, but vital arts space.
In 1994, a community needs and resource assessment conducted by the East Boston Healthy Boston Coalition listed increased arts activity as one of its main priorities. In 1997, ZUMIX was chosen to lead Cultural Connections- a three-year, multi-agency, Neighborhood Preservation Initiative funded by the Pew Charitable Trust.
In 2005, ZUMIX received the "Best Practice Award for Teen Centered Environment" from The Boston Foundation & Greater Boston After-School for All partnership. In 2006 ZUMIX was selected as a semi-finalist for the competitive Federal Coming-Up Taller Award, and was chosen as a 2006 Social Innovator for the Social Innovation Forum at MIT.

Rounder Records
In 1970, with only their passionate enthusiasm for American roots music lighting the way, three Cambridge, Massachusetts college students cast their lot into the perilous music industry. "Before founding Rounder, we were basically music fans," says Rounder Records co-founder Ken Irwin. "None of us," echoes co-conspirator Bill Nowlin, "had any record industry experience whatsoever." Yet this untested trio went the distance: from humble beginnings over thirty years ago to what is now America's premier independent record label. From its early interest in rural American music (via fiddle, stringband, blues, and bluegrass recordings) to an expansive catalogue of more than 3,000 titles running the gamut from folk to world, soul to socas, jazz to juju, Cajun to Celtic, and beyond, Rounder has emerged as the preeminent source for vital, uncompromised music of all genres.

WHO WE ARE and WHAT WE DO:  Cantata Singers was founded in 1964 to perform the cantatas of J.S. Bach—a body of works largely unknown at that time.
