The mission of the Under the Radar Foundation is to open our eyes and hearts to those of us who live "under the radar." High School for Recording Arts has been fortunate to be a friend of Under The Radar for over three years. In that time HSRA has benefitted from Under The Radar's generosity in many ways. Some of the highlights include performing at the Under The Radar Annual Event for the last three years. Our students have performed with such luminaries as CJ Cheinier, Delfeayo Marsalis, and JD Steele. UTR has also sponsored artist in residency, an annual holiday event for homeless students and a summer enrichment programs at the school. However, what is probably the most important gift that HSRA has received from UTR has been the personal time and mentorship that they have given to individual students. We are very proud of our relationship with UTR and its founder Barbara Applebaum Portnoy.
