25th Anniversary Benefit Gala
2015-2016 Annual Report
ETM celebrated its 25th Anniversary at its Children’s Benefit Gala on June 13th, 2016 at Cipriani 42nd Street. The annual Gala featured two Grammy award-winning artists: jazz trumpet player Chris Botti, and longstanding Board member and violinist Joshua Bell. Christine Baranski, Tony and Emmy-winning actress and star of the hit show The Good Wife, emceed the event. The Gala raised over $900,000 for music education.
ETM’s Gala honoree was Steinway & Sons. For over 160 years, Steinway & Sons has been dedicated to the ideal of making the finest pianos in the world, creating instruments renowned for their uncompromising craftsmanship and unsurpassed quality. Equal to their commitment to excellence is their unremitting support of music education. In 2015 Steinway & Sons joined ETM in its efforts to bring music education to the economically disadvantaged children of New York City. This multi-year philanthropic relationship will enable ETM to expand its school partnerships to reach more NYC children, support music teacher education, and promote the importance of music education in schools.
