Lucy Moses School proudly offers scholarships to more than a hundred students every year, ensuring that those in need of financial assistance have the opportunity to pursue their love of music, theater, and dance. For the second year in a row, the Lucy Moses School Play-a-thon helped make this important goal a reality. In 2018 the entire LMS community came together to raise over $42,000 for student scholarships!

The Play-a-thon is a marathon day of recitals open to the public. On January 28, 2018 over 100 students of all ages shared their talents in support of scholarships. Guests were treated to Bach and Mozart, Liszt and Sondheim, and so much more--including the Play-a-thon debut of the Lucy Moses School modern dance program! The recital at 1:30 pm was performed in honor of Lydia Kontos, as a part of our Year of Thanks.

Many thanks to Gabe Meister, Lucy Moses School parent AND student, for taking photos of the Play-a-thon! Check out the full album HERE.

We are deeply grateful to the Assurant Foundation, one of Kaufman Music Center’s generous corporate partners, for their challenge match for the 2018 Lucy Moses School Play-a-thon.

The first $10,000 raised by parents, families and students was matched dollar-for-dollar by the Assurant Foundation. THANK YOU to all of our generous families who helped us meet the match!


The Play-a-thon was also generously underwritten by Con Edison.
