The NEMPAC Performathon held on April 9th at the Boston Public Market was a heart-ful day filled with high spirits, love, and support for MUSIC! Together, students and faculty performed for a great cause resulting in a total of $7,258 raised for the 2016-17 NEMPAC Children’s Music Scholarship Fund! This was NEMPAC’s third year running this Performathon Benefit event after a very successful Keys for Kids launch in the Spring of 2014. Our students, many who performed multiple times, helped us keep the beat going for four entire hours!
Thank you to our event sponsors including NorthEndBoston.com, Andrea and Arthur Waldstein, North End Athletic Association and to our hosts the Boston Public Market! Thank you to State Representative Aaron Michlewitz for showing his support at our event and for sharing exciting news about his late mother’s scholarship fund, entering it’s second year of programming.
Congratulations to our “Pledge Me” Campaign student winners who collected the most pledges for their performance: Anna Magno (1st), Preston Horan (2nd) and Sawyer Bowen-Flynn (3rd).
And most importantly – thank you PARENTS and STUDENTS for all your fundraising efforts, practicing and endless spirit you show for MUSIC! We look forward to the next Performathon 2017.
