Sneak Peek - Ailyn Pérez's Gala Performance


With only a few days left until our annual Gala, the Kaufman Music Center community is eagerly preparing for what is sure to be a very memorable evening.

This year, we are excited to be honoring our Executive Director, Lydia Kontos, who has worked tirelessly for 40 years to help this institution thrive! In addition to celebrating Lydia, the Gala will feature performances by renowned flautists Sir James and Lady Jeanne Galway and acclaimed soprano, Ailyn Pérez.

Earlier this week, Ms. Pérez visited the Center to rehearse with members of the Special Music School Advanced Women’s Chorus, who will be performing with her at the event. Our students were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with ‒ and learn from ‒ this talented, generous musical superstar!
