Over the past two years, assistant professor of music Andrea Mazzariello has facilitated artistic collaborations between Carleton students and young people from the greater Northfield community who hang out at the Northfield Union of Youth, colloquially known as “The Key.”

“I think the kids at The Key are talked to a lot. I don’t think they’re listened to very much,” he says. “So, to just show up and really pay attention can be really profound. That sort of presence says, ‘You are a worthwhile human being and the things that you think about, the sounds that you hear, the things you are making are valuable.’ ”
