Fundraiser for No Boundaries in Morocco

Project No Boundaries is an educational outreach project by associate professor Winnie Dahlgren. It started by taking a group of faculty to Mozambique, working with musicians and students as well as conducting auditions back in 2007. In January 2014 the project is scheduled to go to Morocco working with four music institutions, giving clinics, masterclasses and performances. This time, Berklee students are participating in this program, and they're working hard to make this project a reality.
