The TŌN Fund
Support Innovation! Support The Orchestra NowMembers of The Orchestra Now come from the world’s finest conservatories and are completing a three-year academic program leading to a Master of Music degree in Curatorial, Critical, and Performance Studies from Bard College. TŌN is tuition-free, and each student receives a yearly living stipend and health benefits.
Individual contributions from music lovers like you are essential to TŌN’s success. Your generosity will help to inspire and support TŌN graduate students and their education.
What Your Gift Supports
Your generosity will sustain the next generation of great performers—more than 60 players from 14 countries around the globe—as they learn to communicate the transformative power of music to 21st-century audiences.
Your gift allows us to share music with the communities who need it most:
- Live concerts at Coxsackie, Fishkill, and Woodbourne correctional facilities
- One-on-one mentoring for low-income students in NYC
- Outreach to public schools, senior homes, and community service agencies
- Free concerts for children and families in NYC, the Hudson Valley, and beyond
