February 12th marked the beginning of NEMPAC’s annual “Pledge Me” Perform-a-thon Campaign, with the goal of raising $6,000 in pledges for Children’s Music Scholarships.
The Perform-a-thon, NEMPAC’s Annual Fundraising Concert, will take place on Saturday, March 17th at THE KITCHEN in the Boston Public Market, featuring a three-hour-straight show of NEMPAC students and instructors performing on the instrument of their choice, and spotlighting performances from NEMPAC classes such as Creative Movement, Young Dancers, Kids Music Theatre, NEMPAC Ensemble, and Eliot Music Ensemble.
Here are some photos from last year’s Perform-a-thon:
Participating students and instructors will begin collecting pledges for their performances at this event, banding together to support the NEMPAC Scholarship Fund. NEMPAC awards over $7,000 each year in children’s need-based music scholarships, providing an opportunity for over 20 children to participate in private lessons, after-school music classes, or to experience week-long intensive music camps during the summer.
This year, all pledges up to $5,000 are being co-matched by our generous sponsors – meaning all pledges will be doubled. Since last year, NEMPAC has increased its scholarship awards from $5,000 per year to $7,500 due to the overwhelming success of this event.
