Anthropos Arts connects at-risk youth with professional musicians, cultivating confidence, integrity, and life skills through musical instruction and mentorship.
Through Anthropos Arts, students not only get instruction from the best musicians, they also receive mentorship and the opportunity to perform onstage in Austin’s best venues and events--including the Trail of Lights! Anthropos Arts will be performing with Night Lights Headliner, Shinyribs and Greyhounds, on December 9th! Learn more & buy your tickets here!
The STARS Program Presented by Vista Equity Partners honors the service of over a dozen nonprofit community organizations by offering an exclusive preview of the Trail of Lights.
As a 2016 STARS Sponsor, the Robert F Smith Family spreads the holiday cheer of the Trail of Lights to the constituents of Anthropos Arts. Their sponsorship allows participants an exclusive look at the Trail with a private tour of all the lights, magic & fun! If you're interested in becoming a STARS Sponsor, visit our STARS at the Trail information page here!
The holiday season is a busy musical time for us, with performances and semester’s-end concerts. It also gives us opportunities to introduce our students and families to great Austin traditions like the Trail of Lights!
So many of our students have never been, and are especially excited about bringing their younger siblings and parents. The mention of cookies and Ferris wheel have also earned a lot of double takes!
One of the greatest ways you can support our students is to become a monthly donor. Even a small, but consistent, contribution goes a very long way in helping our kids get lessons and performance opportunities year-round. For more information on getting involved, click here!
We are looking forward to having all 16 of our graduating seniors matriculate to college on scholarship for the 4th year in a row! These kids have worked very hard to beat the odds, most as the first in their families to go to university.
Thank you Austin! 2017 Austin Trail of Lights was filled with smiling faces, amazing performances from our community and of course millions of twinkling lights! From spinning under the Zilker Tree, around the carousel and Ferris Wheel to visits with Santa - check out a few highlights!
