Virtual Benefit
to support the
Academy of Music Scholarship Program
Saturday, February 20, 2021
7:00 pm-8:15 pm

This event will feature musical performances from our students and teachers, a silent auction, balloon pop raffle, and a video glimpse into the musical journeys of our scholarship students. The Academy of Music scholarships provide music lessons and other educational opportunities for talented low-income students ages 18 and under who demonstrate exceptional musical promise. Our scholarship programs were initiated in 2000; since then, over one hundred students have been sponsored to participate in music classes. Join us as we bring “Music for All.”
