"We are so excited that Cleveland Magazine readers have honored us with this award for the third consecutive year," said Geralyn "Geri" Presti, president and CEO of The Music Settlement. "It's a wonderful affirmation of the positive impact of our arts programs, especially as we plan to open our second campus in Ohio City in 2018."
Votes were gathered at the Best of the East 2017 event, which "had a record turnout," according to Cleveland Magazine's Publisher Lute Harmon Jr.
TMS invites the community to celebrate its three-peat win at a free community open house on Sun., July 30, 2017 from 12:30-3:30 pm at BOP STOP at The Music Settlement, 2920 Detroit Ave., Ohio City.  This free, family-friendly event will feature performances on two stages, activities, and snacks (while supplies last).
