Robert H. Gibson River Garden, Main Street, Brattleboro, VT
Admission is free and open to all. Donations are gratefully accepted.
The Music School's Spring Showcase, also known as "Performathon" is a celebration of our students and faculty, a "thank you" to our community, and a chance to raise money for student scholarships.
During the course of the day we offer a series of mini-concerts featuring students at all levels of experience and on all instruments. Between times we have homemade snacks, a CD sale, and a 50/50 raffle, and a plant swap/sale! Drop in for a few minutes or plan to spend part of the day with us - we expect everything from solos and duets to ensembles and music as varied as the hundred or so students who particpate in our programs each year.
While you are there, consider supporting our scholarship fund with an open donation, or by particpating in our bake sale, raffle, CD sale, or plant sale. Each year the Music School awards $25,000 in need-based scholarships to help students who would not otherwise be able to enroll in music lessons, classes, or summer programs. Unfortunately, the number of requests we get for help far out-weigh the funds we have available. Events like the Showcase help fill that gap by raising critical funds to help our students.
How else can I help support the Music School?
Do you have music CDs you no longer listen to? Donate them at any time before May 21st and we'll put them out for our CD sale. We'll take pretty much any genre but we ask that they be in good condition.
Do you have houseplants, extra annuals, or perennial plants you can share? Plants should be in pots for easy sale and transport. Can be brought to the BMC the day or two before the 21st, or bring them first thing in the morning on the 21st!
We are grateful to all of the faculty and students and for the support of their family and friends. Every dollar raised will go to students who need assistance. Together we can make a big difference in the lives of many people!
