Good Vibrations Program

In mid-March, Charter Oak Cultural Center in partnership with the Hartford Police Department launched Good Vibrations, a program designed to improve the relationship between the police and the community through the magic of music. Good Vibrations includes two free courses; a Rap Poetry/CD production class, and a guitar class. All the materials are free, including the guitars which students get to keep. (Guitars donated by Music & Arts.)


We would like to thank WFSB for covering the story which can be seen here.
