Music In Common is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to strengthen, empower, and educate communities through the universal language of music. By producing publicly accessible concerts, school programs, and multimedia productions with an interest in underserved communities and areas where there is a history of conflict, Music in Common (MiC) provides a platform for the exchange of ideas and collaborations that can lead to positive social change.
In October 2005 musician, writer, and producer Todd Mack organized an informal backyard jam in honor of his friend and band mate Danny Pearl as part of Daniel Pearl World Music Days. Fueled by a resonating belief in the power of music to bridge divides between people, that backyard jam has grown into an internationally touring non-profit organization with innovative community-building programs that serve as a call to action in communities around the world. To date, MiC has served thousands of people in more than 200 communities across the US, Middle East, and Far East and operates multiple programs locally, nationally, and internationally.
