Two (2) tickets to Kaufman Music Center's Annual Gala, which takes place at Gustavino's on Monday, May 14, 2018

Kaufman Music Center will present longtime Executive Director Lydia Kontos with the Lifetime Achievement Award at our 2018 Gala.

Lydia will be recognized for her distinguished career at Kaufman Music Center, which has spanned nearly 40 years, on the occasion of her retirement (planned for fall 2018).

The Gala will feature performances by outstanding guest artists, including: living legends of the flute, Sir James Galway and Lady Jeanne Galway, both renowned for gracing stages throughout the world with eloquence and virtuosity; and acclaimed soprano Ailyn Pérez, hailed by the New York Times as a performer who “commands the stage” and “a major soprano." Stay tuned for more details!

Featuring cocktails, a seated dinner, and live music, this will be an unforgettable celebration of what makes Kaufman Music Center so special! 

This celebration supports KMC's Fund for Music Education, which underwrites the extensive music curriculum at Special Music School, a K-12 public school for musically gifted children; provides scholarships to underprivileged students at Lucy Moses School; and creates opportunities for children in New York City’s neediest schools to enjoy musical theater performances. Each year, Kaufman Music Center invests over $2 million in these important programs.
