You’ll then experience a concert featuring performances from ten of the school’s leading ensembles, and end the evening over dessert and coffee with the performers. Cadenza is the perfect opportunity to enjoy top-notch music while connecting with others who believe in the power of philanthropy to uplift and amplify the next generation of artists.
