The Bloomingdale School of Music was established in 1964 with the simple premise that all members of a community deserve access to high quality music instruction. The ideal of giving to others has infused the school’s culture and is evident in the annual Performathon which features 10 hours of nonstop performances by over 200 of the school’s students who have solicited sponsors with the goal of raising much needed funds for scholarships. More than 20% of Bloomingdale School of Music students receive scholarships each year. Over the past decade Bloomingdale has awarded over $1.5 million in student scholarships. Last year, students and sponsors raised over $20,000 for the Scholarship Fund.
Through Performathon the Bloomingdale school ensures that everyone in our community has access to high quality music programs and teaches these young musicians that artists can be agents for change and cultural equity. You can support and encourage BSM students to share their talents in order to ensure accessibility to instruction by sponsoring a student performer and attending the May 18th Performathon. All proceeds go to support BSM’s extensive scholarship and financial aid programs.
REGISTRATION for the Summer Semester is open. For a summary of offerings visit: https://www.bsmny.org/programs/summerclasses.php.
Check out our new weeklong workshops in guitar and rock/jazz plus we’ll be presenting Carnival of the Instruments and Pictures at a Music School.
