The Conrad O. Johnson Music & Fine Arts Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization created to develop, preserve, and support music and the arts through providing educational and scholarship opportunities for youth throughout the greater Houston area.
The mission of the Conrad O. Johnson Music & Fine Arts Foundation is to encourage the development of young people in the Houston/Gulf Coast area through support of educational programs that nurture and promote their artistic abilities. Our programs provide the resources essential to our youth to help them explore, develop, and refine their artistic talents.
The foundation is more than a program on music; it is a program about reaching our children, and about helping them to become successful and productive citizens. In addition to the music, the students are taught life skills to survive successfully in this world.
Since 2000, the foundation has held multitudes of fundraising events to provide more than $70,000 in scholarship support and instruments to Houston area students. Fundraisers have featured the talents of many local and national artists including Melanie Lawson, Deborah Duncan, and Phylicia Allen Rashad, as well as jazz artists Najee, Steve Turre, Horace Alexander Young, Alva Nelson, Joe Sample, Tex Allen, Hubert, Eloise, Donna, and Debra Laws, Joe Carmouche, Kyle Turner, Everette Harp and Michael Ward.
