Learn more about Time In and their extraordinary work below.

The Time In Children’s Arts Initiative’s arts immersive programming – engaging opera, hands-on art, gallery hops, live performance, intensive language and literature – transforms the lives & learning of chronically disadvantaged public school children ensuring that each child receives the material knowledge and positive reinforcement that they need to become effective and knowledgeable creators, as well as engaged, responsible and thoughtful participants in our greater democracy.

MISSION:

Joyously engaging the arts to ensure that underserved children have the tools and support they deserve to flourish, thrive & hope.

VISION:

Time In’s brilliant arts-immersive curriculum will change the face of education, transforming the lives of at-risk children and, as a result, the communities in which they live.

VALUES:

We believe that life-long learners and leaders emerge not from punitive time outs, but from effective participation in the real world.Time In’s vibrant, interdisciplinary arts initiative ensures that underserved children, who would otherwise have no access to services of this quality, receive the material knowledge and positive reinforcement that they need to become both effective and knowledgeable creators, as well as engaged, responsible and thoughtful participants in a larger democracy.Every child, regardless of socio-economic background is entitled to a thoughtfully crafted, arts-enriched education in which each individual child’s talents and needs are recognized, and the support for greater creativity, intelligence, self-esteem and a brighter, better future is more than just a promise.

I am *THRILLED* to let you know that “Shakuntala” - the first preview track of my new album "Into the Fire” has just been released on @AppleMusic and @Spotify. 🎧 Listen to it here: 🔗link in bio. Recorded live at the iconic Wigmore Hall, this recital with my treasured partners, the Brentano Quartet, was conceived around Jake Heggie’s song cycle "Camille Claudel: Into the Fire", a work written for me. Jake is not only a brilliant composer but he has also been a dear friend for many years. This new recording is truly one of most moving projects I’ve ever been part of and I hope will enjoy it. When Camille utters, “Thank you for remembering me” at the conclusion of this beautiful cycle, it is my hope that we not only remember her, but that we vigorously honor her genius and her vision, as well. @warner_classics . . .

🎈 I can't even begin to describe how excited I am about the upcoming release of “Songplay” on @warner_classics . It's a truly unique project that unites extraordinary musicians from the worlds of opera, jazz, and tango in the pure pleasure of improvisation, experimentation, and exchange. Together we create our own musical language, surprising listeners with timeless melodies transformed and universal stories retold over centuries; songs in English, in Italian and – naturally – in the universal language of music. I had one of the most exhilarating musical weeks of my life recording the album #Songplay with a world-class band. Trust me: you’re going to remember each one of these guys! It’s an incredible family of musicians – bass, piano, trumpet, drums and bandoneon. We have essentially created our own sound-world, fusing together music from the Baroque era and classics from the jazz world – with a few other surprises tossed in,’ explains Joyce. ‘We’ve all let down our guard (some of us have even let down our hair) and we’ve each expanded the musical traditions that we have come from to create our own style for this album. It’s joyful, it’s exuberant, it celebrates great music, and it shines a spotlight on the timeless nature of a great song. I hope you’ll want to hear this album over and over, and will grow to appreciate the value of playing with a song! #Songplay - coming to you in February 2019. Stay tuned! Photo: @chrissingerme

Who doesn’t love a lady who lives life without apology? #TheFlorenceFoaterJenkinsStory is available NOW on Amazon Prime in the US and UK. At the end of our filming, I had a profound, new level of admiration and love for this astonishing and complex Lady. I believe you will, as well ... #watchnow @primevideouk @primevideo

Leaving Athens with the fullest of hearts, having met these extraordinary - and I do mean EXTRAORDINARY - young men in Athens. They played and sang for me and with me, along with many other beautiful young people, and they deserve every single opportunity in the world. Thank you, boys, for bringing such beauty, joy, love, and peace to me! We will meet again! @alabrasabdullah @pouya.pouya.372 @vic_palazzo2004 #skaramagascamp @elsistemagreece
