Federal Music Project


Federal Music Project
   The Federal Music Project was created in 1935 under the provisions of Federal One in the Works Progress Administration (WPA). It provided work for more than 15,000 unemployed musicians who gave thousands of live concerts, performances, and radio broadcasts, as well as more than 1.5 million music classes. It subsequently became the WPA Music Project and lasted until 1943.
