A Music Non-Profit 

 By Aniketh Arvind

SPREADING THE BEAUTY OF MUSIC WITH PROWESS AND COMPASSION

UNITED WE STRING AT A GLANCE

WHO WE ARE

United We String is a non-profit organization established in 2020 by Aniketh Arvind. Our mission is to spread the melodious sounds of string music to heal the broken world in which we live. From the COVID-19 pandemic which brought so much suffering and loss, to the events surrounding the persistent and endemic racism in this country, we believe that music is the salve for the soul.

The founder, Aniketh Arvind, has been playing piano since the age of 4 and violin since third grade. He is also learning South Indian Classical Carnatic vocal music. He was a gold medalist in the J.Y. Park Piano Competition, 2018. He currently attends the Music Conservatory of Westchester and is a member of the Greater Westchester Youth Orchestra Association (GWYOA). He has attended Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan as well as the Manhattan School of Music in NYC. Aniketh has had the honor of performing at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.   

Music is Aniketh's answer to the world.

 

MY STORY

HOW IT BEGAN

Speech.png

My story began a few years ago when I visited a special needs school in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India. Having spent the summer volunteering at the humble Neyam Special School, I realized just how lucky I was, but also how much more I needed to do. Having grown up believing in values like equality and equal opportunity, I wanted my summer experience to shape my outlook forever. United We String was born out of my need to bring together my passion for music with lessons learned from that life-changing experience at Neyam, to do what feels right.

 

BRINGING CHANGE, ONE NOTE AT A TIME

WHAT WE DO

United We String performs for healthcare workers and patients at hospitals and children and teachers at schools in America and India. Through this platform, we recruit young, budding musicians to perform their favorite pieces via video-conference and share their love of music with the world. If you play an instrument, love music, and want to make this world a better place (and you're a kid!), join us!
~ We welcome one and all! ~
