Performathon 2020
Active Dates: 2/1/2020 - 5/29/2020

PERFORMATHON 2020 is a ten-hour marathon recital on Saturday, May 2 involving students of all ages who will share their musical skills throughout the day to help raise money for the Fund for the Community Music Division. The Fund supports scholarships, community partnerships, and educational enrichment programs.

Many families are not able to meet the financial demands of first-class quality music education for their children. The Community Music Division assists with scholarship support. Since 1997, we have awarded more than 700 scholarships for both need and talent, and for the past two years have provided tuition-free instruction to nearly 250 students a year in under-resourced public schools in the Chicago area. In addition, we have provided annual enrichment opportunities for all of our on-site students through Suzuki workshops, chamber fests, and concerto opportunities.
