Catalyst Music works to empower young people by providing them their own spaces”



Twin Cities Catalyst Music (Catalyst) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization with the mission to provide young people with equitable access to see, experience, and participate in the Twin Cities music community.

Catalyst fulfills its mission through The Garage in Burnsville, their all ages (no 18+ or 21+ restrictions), community driven, locally supportive, alcohol-free, live music venue, recording studio, and educational facility.

The organization works to empower young people by providing them “their own spaces” to perform, participate in music education programs, learn valuable employment skills, partake in leadership opportunities, and engage with their local community.

In addition to live performances, the organization offers virtual and in-person free year-round music education programs focused on songwriting, performance, recording, videography, and music production.

Since 2015, Catalyst has presented over 500 live performances for a collective audience of more than 50,000 individuals while working with over 2,000 young aspiring artists through various free mentoring and performance opportunities.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
