Gifts, Donations & Sponsorship



Sponsoring a the music festival or participant's award can be a game changer for kids! The event brings children in direct contact with experts who help affirm and inspire them along their way to excellence in the craft of music making. Receiving an award affirms their achievement and tells them that they should keep going! You can play a part in their musical education by giving a financial gift towards festival operations or awards. Awards are dispersed according to the discretion of our adjudicators.
