Gift of Music



Featuring renowned violinist, JOSHUA BELL, pianist ALESSIO BAX, and violinist SHARON ROFFMAN


Honoring DOROTHY KAPLAN ROFFMAN, Founding Director, Thurnauer School of Music


Join us at the Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood, NJ as we celebrate 32 years of magnificent music education at the Thurnauer School of Music. This year, we are proud to honor our beloved founding director, Dorothy Kaplan Roffman, on her 75th birthday. Through Dorothy’s vision, wisdom, leadership and generosity, she has provided thousands of individuals – from infants to adults – with the highest quality music education.


The Gala celebrates the school’s remarkable achievements, while raising critical scholarship funds for children in our community who wish to study music, but whose families lack the financial resources.
