What is a Performathon?

A Performathon is a marathon series of fundraising performances by students and faculty. Through contributions, we will be raising money for our Scholarship Fund and Outreach Programs.

Why do we need a Performathon?

Try to imagine what your life would be like without music...Indian Hill's Annual Performathon makes it possible for us to give over $72,000 in scholarships to those who can't afford to study music.

How will funds be raised for scholarships?

Students and faculty who are playing in recitals on April 7 and 8 will ask people to sponsor their performance. We average over 200 performers each year. Last year we raised over $30,000, a goal we are going to repeat this year with your support.

How can I make a contribution?

You can pay by cash, check (payable to Indian Hill Music) and credit card. Secure credit card contributions can be made online through the Firstgiving website.

Students and other performers who are fundraising online for the Performathon can give you information about this method of contributing, or you can visit our main page, and make a direct donation.

How much of my donation goes to scholarships and outreach?

100% of individual contributions will go directly to the Scholarship Fund and Outreach Programs. Your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

Can I attend the recitals?

Yes! We encourage everyone to come to the recitals on Friday evening and all day Saturday. Students will provide you with information about the recital for which they are scheduled. We hope our sponsors will stay for at least one hour of the concert marathon in order to provide a good audience for each of our performers.

Besides being a sponsor, how can I help?

There are a number of volunteer opportunities available during the recitals (like handing out programs, checking in students, selling refreshments). Call the school office (978) 486-9524 if you are interested in being a volunteer.
