Share The Music: 21st Annual Performathon

An online, student-driven performance & fundraiser for BSM’S scholarship fund starting on April 28, 2021, and culminating in a live musical event on May 15, 2021, at 5 pm.
Share The Music: 21st Annual Performathon
April 28 - May 15, 2021 12:00 am


Help support Bloomingdale School of Music’s Scholarship Program, the core of our mission to provide open access to quality music education! 

Our 2-week fundraising campaign gives BSM students the chance to upload a personal performance video to their own fundraising page, share it with family and friends, and ask them to donate to BSM’s scholarship fund in honor of their performance. 

Join us on May 15th for a culminating live event featuring student performance highlights. Hear from BSM students how studying music at our school has impacted their lives. Join the chat to celebrate BSM’s musical community from near and far! While we can’t feature every student’s performance at the live event, all the wonderful performance videos will live here on this platform for people to listen to and enjoy!



Access to music education for all has been our hallmark since our founding over 50 years ago. We work with our students to eliminate barriers to quality music education. Financial aid is key in many cases. Over the past decade alone, Bloomingdale has awarded more than $2 million in tuition assistance and aided thousands of families. Our annual Performathon is a way for students to share the music and raise funds to support their peers and help provide access to all.

The student who raises the most wins an Apple iPad, 128 GB, and an Apple Care package. (Data plan NOT included). This prize will be shipped to the winner’s home.

Second Place Prize (two winners): Win a pair of Apple/Beats Solo Pro Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones!

The two students who raise the second and third highest amounts each win a pair of Apple/Beats Solo Pro Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones. This prize will be shipped to the winner’s home.
