Merit School of Music hosted our first-ever Virtual Gala on May 5, 2020. Over 500 families tuned in and we exceeded our anonymous donor’s generous matching pledge! Our students, faculty, and staff are so thankful for the continued support of our community of support as we work hard to keep the music going.
Merit’s event caught the attention of local and national journalists. You can read a selection of the Virtual Gala’s media coverage below:
