Annual Benefit

Our annual Valentine’s Benefit took place on Tuesday, February 2, 2016 at The Yale Club of New York. The evening was hosted by ABC’s Amy Freeze, and featured a performance by the Gregorio Uribe Big Band! To see photographs from the event, click here.

Stay tuned for details about next year’s benefit!



Each year, TBMS students, faculty, community members, and supporters come together for a whole weekend of non-stop music making! Perform-A-Thon is the cornerstone of our annual fundraising campaign to help TBMS provide free and low-cost music education to New York City students, musical outreach to community centers, and free concert series for the community at large, as well as fulfill all scholarships and financial aid requests.

Each Perform-A-Thon opens with a themed Kick-Off Concert, featuring special guest and faculty performers, and continues with three days of community music performances. All are welcome to participate in this family-friendly event. Performers are asked to raise a suggested donation in support of TBMS’s community music programs.

Perform-A-Thon is also made possible through the sponsorship of businesses and individual donors. If you would like to find out how you can contribute or become a sponsor, please contact Julie Rulyak-Steinberg, Executive Director, at
