After more than 100 years, The Lighthouse Guild asks the Filomen M. D’Agostino Greenberg Music School, to find a new home. The music school has served blind and visually impaired musicians in Manhattan since 1913. The school works with 120 children and adult students. Moreover, the institution is an archive of some 25,000 Braille and large-print musical scores, second only to the Library of Congress.
“This decision was difficult because the school has been a part of the fabric of Lighthouse Guild for over 100 years,” wrote Dr. Alan Morse, president of the Lighthouse Guild, an organization with a mission to assist the blind.
If you are blind or live with visual impairment, please reach out to SDCB for assistance.
