On Saturday’s broadcast, we present the first of two programs featuring the Merit School of Music’s 2015 Performathon, an annual two day music and fundraising extravaganza featuring the students of the Alice S. Pfaelzer Tuition-free Conservatory.

Our first broadcast featured the Merit Wind Symphony in the opening night concert for Performathon on February 27, 2015 in Anne and Howard Gottlieb hall at the Merit School of Music. Bryan Polacek leads the Wind Symphony in a diverse program for winds and percussion.

Performathon 2015 was made possible by the generous support of the Baskin Family Foundation and Ruth Miner Swislow.
