2020 Kaufman Music Center Gala

Due to the COVID-19 crisis in New York City, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our annual Gala, originally scheduled for June 1. The Development team will be following up with Gala supporters with more information.

Postponing the Gala is a significant financial challenge for us. This important event raises nearly $1 million every year for our music education programs. If you would like to make a gift to support our programs during this unprecedented time, click here.

Kaufman Music Center’s 2020 Gala will honor Devorah and David Krieger for their deep commitment to music education and the arts.

We are also thrilled to present the Creative Arts Award to Grammy-winning / Songwriters Hall Of Fame inductee Desmond Child, who will also perform alongside some of our very own students.
