Tune in for our school-wide showcase concert on June 21!

Play your part… sponsor a student today

From 800+ homes across the city… it’s our annual Performapaloozathon event (virtual edition)!

It’s #ANewWorld of challenge and hardship. But that hasn’t stopped our students and teachers from working harder than ever. Music and the ability to express, to partake in beauty, to be a part of something greater, to feel worthy – these are not discretionary for us, and our mission feels more important than ever.

We are thrilled to announce our annual Performapaloozathon celebration is taking a new triumphant form – over 20 virtual concerts over 7 days, culminating in a school-wide showcase concert! Be sure to join us on Facebook Live Sunday, June 21 at 3:00pm as we close out this incredible semester! And, stay tuned to learn more about how you can join in the fun.

We are proud to be a part of Make Music Chicago – a free, city-wide celebration of music on June 21.

Special thanks to our generous sponsors: The Joseph & Bessie Feinberg Foundation and Athena Fund ❤️
