In May of every year, more than 300 students participate in
Performathon, a 10-hour marathon recital of continuous solo and ensemble performances to raise funds for our Community Music Division Scholarship Fund.
Friends, neighbors and family members are asked to sponsor student performances for this fundraising event. Area businesses and interested individuals also give their support through patron contributions, advertisements, and donations of products and services. All proceeds from Performathon support our on-site scholarships and partnership programs with schools.
