WHY PARTICIPATE?

👐   GIVING BACK TO THEIR FELLOW STUDENTS –  Every dollar raised this year will go DIRECTLY to NEMPAC’s Educational Programming and Tuition Assistance Program. Every year, this is a wonderful opportunity for NEMPAC students to give back to other students in their community who cannot

otherwise afford lessons or classes. By performing and collecting pledges, this peer-to-peer fundraising enhances our community engagement and gives students a sense of accomplishment in doing something for their peers.

🎶 BENEFITS OF LIVE PERFORMANCE – Performing in a concert, recital or event is so important for music students! It gives them a chance to work on their performance skills, support their fellow student musicians, and show off their months of hard work! It gives the students something to work toward and prepare for and provides a special event that they’ll remember for years to come.

🏆  BIGGER AND BETTER PRIZES

🥇 Pledge Prizes: The top 3 students who collect the most pledges this year will win something very special!
