The Gift of Music Benefit Gala Concert raises scholarship funds to support children who wish to study music, but whose families lack the financial resources. We are so grateful that Joseph Polisi, a world-renowned educator, and artists from our past galas—Wynton Marsalis, Joshua Bell, Steven Isserlis, Sharon Isbin, Colin Davin and Francisco Núñez—are joining us on May 2 at this year’s virtual Gift of Music event to support this endeavor. Please join us for this inspiring event as our students and guest artists celebrate the importance of music in our lives with performances and words.
The Gift of Music was established by Drs. Joan and Alan Handler.
