SEMSA activities, including the Rochester Middle Schools Outreach Program (April 2019) and Gasshuku 2018 (November 2018), are made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund.
The 2016 Improvisational Workshop and 2018 Gasshuku were made possible in part through funding from the Greater Rochester Arts and Cultural Trust.
Rochester Commercial Banks Association -- The 2016 Improvisational Workshop and 2018 Gasshuku were both supported by the Rochester Commercial Banks Association - Associated, Eastwood, Merchants, Minnwest, Premier, Sterling State, U.S. and Wells Fargo Banks.
IBM Corporation -- SEMSA also recognizes the generous support of the IBM Corporation through the IBM Community Grant Fund. IBM awarded SEMSA with a 2018 grant in support of our Gasshuku workshop and a 2017 grant in support of our recital programs.

“Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline and endurance. They get a beautiful heart.” - Shinichi Suzuki
