Thank You from Toby and Itzhak Perlman
Thanks to YOU – our generous guests, donors, and bidders – we are celebrating a record-breaking Charity Wine Auction for PMP!
On Thursday, February 6 at Le Bernardin Prive, you all came together to raise $800,000: over a quarter of our program’s annual budget. Wow. Your collective efforts on this one night will uphold the artistic dreams of 77 students and more than 700 alumni this year.
For those of you who joined us, you witnessed firsthand the inspiring results of over 25 years of hard work from our dedicated students, alumni, faculty, and staff. We know just how good our PMP’ers are, but it still takes our breath away.
Our students are some of the most wonderful people you will ever meet. We encourage their talent in a way that promotes their sense of self and develops their individual artistic voice. It’s a simple idea, but in this fast-paced day and age, it feels practically groundbreaking. By supporting PMP, you transform a young artist’s potential into a life-changing reality.
We are astounded, deeply touched, and overwhelmingly grateful for the love you have shown for these young virtuosi. The world is changing and these students are at the forefront of it all. Thank you for helping them on their way.
