Special Events



What could be better than enjoying cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and phenomenal performances by world-renowned musicians in a beautiful private home? When you attend a Musical Evening, you help make it possible for the children at Kaufman Music Center’s Special Music School, a public school for musically gifted children, to receive all the benefits of a top-notch music education at no cost to their families. This season’s Musical Evenings began on November 15 with pianist Conrad Tao (above with members of the Pannonia Quartet: Ben Goldstein, Javen Lara, Emma Ike and Irene Chun) at the home of Marcia and David Lavipour and continue on February 11 with the acclaimed violinist Hilary Hahn and May 8 with the Kronos Quartet. Proceeds from Musical Evenings support the Special Music School’s music program, which is funded solely by Kaufman Music Center through private donations. For information and tickets, please call 212 501 3350.
