Providing an opportunity for handicapped and underprivileged children to learn and perform classical music in the communities of the United States of America and internationally is the main goal of Schlern International Music Festival. All concerts and events are free to public and our brilliant students are in need of and depend on considerable scholarship support. Your tax-deductible contribution to Schlern International Music Festival will help hundreds of handicapped and underprivileged students to learn classical music and perform at concerts.
Schlern International Music Festival is supported by private tax deductible contributions from people and organizations who believe in giving performance opportunities and exposure to student artists and depends upon the financial support of friends, foundations, alumni, and corporations to maintain its position as an important educational institution in the performing arts. Your contribution in any amount makes a difference.
