Formerly known as the Everett Symphony, the Snohomish County Music Project has provided music services to Everett since 1982. Born out of a community-wide planning process led by former County Executive, Bob Drewel, the Everett Symphony was subsequently restructured, launching its new identity as the Snohomish County Music Project (Music Project) in May 2011. Those involved in the transition process envisioned the organization as an ideal way to promote the idea of artistic citizenship â€“ using the power of music to inspire people to make a positive change in the world. Following the lead of several successful music organizations around the country, the Music Projectâ€™s Board of Directors decided to adopt the principles of artistic citizenship and become as much a human service organization as an arts organization. From its origin as the Everett Symphony, the Music Project has transformed into a multi-faceted therapeutic, education, advocacy, and artistic hub which uses the power of music to inspire and catalyze positive change in Snohomish County.
