Tompkins Community Bank, presenting sponsor
Chaired by Brian & Melissa Pinheiro

Thank you so much for your support at this year’s 115th Anniversary Gala!

Thank you to our amazing sponsors, guests, staff, volunteers, and our wonderful students for making Settlement Music School’s 115th Anniversary Gala a resounding success! Over 400 guests joined us at the National Constitution Center to celebrate the Board Chair Ellen Friedell, Board President, Justin Klein, the School’s legacy of shaping generations and the 10th Anniversary of our Music Education Pathways program. Together we raised more than $470,000, all going towards our mission to support unlimited financial aid for children.


Everyone’s support, enthusiasm, and hard work made for an unforgettable evening; Check out these links for the photos that prove it!
