Support Music Education!
Our hardworking student and faculty performers have worked together to collect pledges in support of our Children’s Music Scholarship Fund, with the goal of raising $2500 in pledges, which will be double matched by our generous sponsors. We are thrilled to report that we have far exceeded our goal thus far, raising over $3,686 in pledges! We won’t stop here, as the more we raise in pledges the more children we can serve through our need based scholarships.
Give the gift of music and help us reach our goal by pledging a student or faculty performer. Your donations will give over 20 students the opportunity to participate in private lessons or after-school music classes!
