Virtual Performathon: Spring 2021

Recital Season: May 8 – June 20

Every year at this time, our Performathon student fundraiser brings everyone together to share our music to help others have the chance to play and learn. Since our community is still unable to gather safely in person, we will have a virtual Performathon during our May-June recital season. View the schedule

As we all know, the Covid-19 pandemic continues to impact us financially, emotionally, and socially. For those who are able to donate, gifts to our Scholarship & Outreach Fund are more important than ever due to the hardships that many of our student families and others in the communities we serve are experiencing. Your heartfelt donations will help us make music accessible to those who seek it, and your music will bring joy and inspiration to this challenging time.

As a non-profit community music school, we believe that high-quality musical experiences should be accessible to all. In a typical year, we invest over $130,000 in need-based education and performance programs serving thousands of people in high-need communities in our region. Your generous donations provide a significant portion of our scholarship and outreach funds for the year and support our mission to give music generously. Every dollar makes a BIG difference!

Your Performathon Donations Support These Vital Community Programs

Our partnerships with Fitchburg, Ayer-Shirley, Lawrence, and Clinton public schools provide free music lessons, band and string programs, and performing opportunities to students who might not otherwise have the chance to learn to play. Plus, our new after-school program at the Boys and Girls Club of Fitchburg and Leominster features year-round bucket drumming and ukulele classes.

Our free monthly Bach’s Lunch concerts bring the joy of live music to seniors and disabled adults in a warm and social setting. During the pandemic, while our building has been closed to the public, some of our faculty groups performed outdoor concerts at facilities in Concord and Westford.

Our bedside choir, the Threshold Singers at Indian Hill, provides comfort through song for the very ill and their families. Though the facilities we visit have not allowed volunteers since March of 2020, the Threshold Singers continue to meet virtually, staying connected and maintaining the skills they will need when in-person singing resumes.

Through your support, we offer over $130,000 in need-based scholarships and high-impact outreach programs each year! Every donation helps to ensure that these vital programs continue to make music accessible to all.
