This spring, history meets destiny, and philanthropy meets fun! Settlement Music School’s 116th Anniversary Gala will raise spirits while we raise funds for financial aid, awarded to 60% of our families. 

The Gala is simply not to be missed; a rare opportunity to socialize, network, dress up, dine, dance, and enjoy live music!  400 of our region’s corporate and community leaders joyfully gather to celebrate the lasting impacts of a Settlement experience. Community arts change lives, and the Gala reminds us why we do what we do. 

“There is nothing like a Settlement Gala – it just grows and gets better with time – it’s a privilege to be there and always a wonderful experience.” LIbby Harwitz, alumna, alumni parent, and Board member 

Join us – to celebrate our community, to see what we have accomplished, and to lend your support for accessible, creative arts education to all.
