Growing a vibrant arts community that welcomes everyone.

Bloom is more than an initiative, it’s an ecosystem. It’s an unrelenting belief in the power of the arts and a fierce conviction that each of us deserves access to them. 

Though Strathmore is known best for concerts and public programs on our North Bethesda campus, Bloom captures the essence of our role in the community—helping arts to thrive and making sure that everyone has an opportunity to experience them. Through school residencies and tuition-free music instruction to free live concerts, we celebrate the power of the arts to help us flourish. Through the Bloom initiative, tens of thousands of students and other neighbors experience the arts every year!
