The Filomen M. D'Agostino Greenberg Music School and its student council invite you to the Seventh Annual Music School Performathon on December 14, 2013.

Francesco Magisano with accompanying teachers: Owen Stewart-Robertson and Chris Petz

What is a Performathon?

Think of it as a walkathon on stage or a marathon of songs! Performers of all ages, musical levels and styles solicit donations in order to perform. Individual students need to raise $10 or more to perform at the event, while performance ensembles need to raise $100 or more per group.

Please sponsor a student or one of our ensembles!

  • A child who is enrolled in the Comprehensive Music Program for Young People (CMPYP): This student engages weekly in a core curriculum that serves as a foundation for establishing essential music skills. Classes include braille music, music theory, music technology, music appreciation, dance, and individual lessons including piano, guitar, voice, flute and drums. Sponsor a child now!

  • An adult who is enrolled in individual lessons: This student studies individually with one or more of our faculty members for 45 minutes per week. Instruction is available in voice, piano, guitar, recorder, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, drums, vibraphone and percussion. Sponsor an adult student now!

  • A Performance Ensemble: Ensembles consist of up to 20 students who rehearse together weekly. Our youth ensembles include chorus, percussion, rock, and an eclectic instrumental group. Adult ensembles include the 25-member Vocal Ensemble, jazz ensemble, and two pop/rock music ensembles: Jam 59 and McSaffler. Sponsor a performance ensemble now!

Lynette on percussionYour generous donation directly benefits the students of the Music School. Your support helps us keep tuition costs affordable, thereby providing significant support to visually impaired students of all ages so that they may continue engaging in music study year after year.

Please note that there is a $10 minimum donation to sponsor an individual student to perform, and a $100 minimum donation to sponsor an ensemble.
