Settlement Music School’s Anniversary Gala brings 400 of the area’s top corporate and community leaders together for an evening that celebrates community music with cocktails, dinner, and dancing, plus performances by outstanding Settlement students.
Proceeds from the Gala benefit Settlement programs and the financial aid that makes these programs accessible to all, regardless of background, level of ability, or financial means. Sixty percent of Settlement students receive aid, valued at more than $2 million.
This year’s event honors our beloved Settlement alumni! Since 1908, more than 300,000 students have come through our doors, and they carry a love for music and arts education with them wherever they may be. We are so proud to have them represent the best of Settlement Music School, both near and far. We are thrilled to be able to honor internationally acclaimed jazz guitarist Kevin Eubanks, businessman and philanthropist Leonard Mellman, and Philadelphia School District special education teacher Harriet Go. Kevin, Leonard, and Harriet represent leadership in the arts, in business, and in education, and are exemplar of the many ways that Settlement alumni have made our world a better place.
Ann Marie and Carl Edwards will be this year’s Gala Chairs. Ann Marie is CEO of Alliance Cancer Specialists and a trustee of the Settlement Central Board of Directors.
