Benefit Supports Music Scholarships for Children at Kaufman Music Center
Piano Faculty Member Chaim Freiberg to be honored for his 40 years of teaching
at Lucy Moses School
On Tuesday, March 12, 2013, Kaufman Music Center will hold its annual Scholarship Luncheon, which supports scholarships for deserving and motivated children studying at the Center’s Lucy Moses School. The scholarship program makes it possible for more than 200 children from underserved communities to participate in the skills-based study of music, dance and theater each year. One of the largest and most respected community arts schools in the country, Lucy Moses School brings high-quality, affordable instruction to more than 2,500 adults and children each year. The school awards financial aid to needy students and conducts community engagement projects throughout the city.
The 2013 Lucy Moses School Scholarship Luncheon will honor Kaufman Music Center faculty member and pianist Chaim Freiberg for his extraordinary dedication to music education and his work at Lucy Moses School for the past 40 years. A graduate of the Rubin Academy in Tel-Aviv and The Juilliard School, Mr. Freiberg joined the Lucy Moses School piano faculty in 1973, when the school was known as the Hebrew Arts School. He has performed as soloist with orchestras and chamber ensembles in Israel, the U.S. and Canada, and as accompanist and coach to singers in opera, lieder and Jewish vocal repertoire.
“Lucy Moses School has been my home away from home for the last 35 years,” says Mr. Freiberg, who was also honored by the LMS in 1997 for his inspired and dedicated work with his students. “The school’s faith in my work has granted me the unconditional freedom that I needed to grow as a teacher.”
Tickets to the Scholarship Luncheon start at $100 and may be purchased by calling 212 501 3350.

The Scholarship Luncheon at 11:45 am will be followed at 2:15 pm by the Henry Schneider Scholarship Concert showcasing some of the most talented Lucy Moses School Scholarship recipients, who will perform in chamber ensembles and as soloists in Merkin Concert Hall.
