Celebrating 40!

The 40th Anniversary GRAND Campaign

The Anniversary Gala is over but our musical dreams for the future continue, thanks to the support of many.

Following a beautiful, musical gala, made possible by generous sponsors, we are excited to announce the 40th Anniversary GRAND Campaign!

Our dream is centered on acquiring a Steinway Grand Piano.

Why the GRAND Campaign

A good piano is the hub of music-making for every musician, student to professional. Our dream is for every child and teen of Greater Worcester to play (or be accompanied by) this world class instrument, raising the bar for teaching and learning.

Funds raised will support the purchase of a Steinway (or similar) performance grand piano. The campaign also includes investment funds for annual instrument maintenance (humidity/heat control, tunings and repairs); also facilities costs and enhancements connected with performances and teaching activities.

The Goal:  $240,000    As of November 1, 2022:  $180,000 raised
