Bloomingdale School of Music Performathon 2020

by Bloomingdale School of Music

Bloomingdale School of Music's 20th Annual Performathon! An online, student-driven performance & fundraiser for BSM’S scholarship fund, culminating in a live musical event on June 6, 2020, at 6 pm.

What is Performathon?

Help support Bloomingdale School of Music's Scholarship Program, the core of our mission to provide open access to quality music education! 

Our 2-week fundraising campaign gives BSM students the chance to upload a personal performance video to their own fundraising page, share with family and friends, and ask them to donate to BSM’s scholarship fund in honor of their performance. Join us on June 6 for a culminating live event featuring student performance highlights, and a layered faculty ensemble video finale. Hear live from BSM students how studying music at BSM has impacted their lives. Join the chat to celebrate BSM's musical community from near and far!

Why we do Performathon

ACCESS to music education for all has been our hallmark since our founding over 50 years ago. We work with our students to eliminate barriers to quality music education. Financial aid is key in many cases. Over the past decade alone, Bloomingdale has awarded more than $2 million in tuition assistance and aided thousands of families. Our annual Performathon is a way for students to share the music and raise funds to support their peers and help provide access to all.
