HMI Outbound is a community engagement program presented by the Henry Mancini Institute that brings a distinctive blend of stylistically diverse music to public schools and such community venues in South Florida as Fairchild Tropical Garden, the Knight Concert Hall at the Adrienne Arsht Center, UM Gusman Concert Hall in Coral Gables, Pinecrest Gardens, and The Stage in the Wynwood District of downtown Miami. The Henry Mancini Institute is comprised of cross-trained classical, jazz and world musicians that represent an exceptionally diverse community, both culturally and economically. 

HMI Outbound expands its offerings beyond traditional Western music and is inimitably poised to “mix it up” with its jazz, classical, rock, hip-hop, world-beat, multimedia and film music artists, providing an immediate and open community engagement springboard for the collaboration of new and highly creative musical ideas.

A series of world-renown guest artists appear each year with the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra to incubate new works and expose young people to new forms of music, teaching them how relevant open musical expression is to the development of a connected world.

HMI Outbound also enriches the cultural landscape of South Florida and beyond through audio and video recordings, live concerts, televised productions, and web-based social networking.

The program is partially funded by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, matched by business leader and University of Miami trustee Adrienne Arsht, with additional support from the University of Miami Frost School of Music.
