 The event will begin with cocktails, appetizers and live music performed by MYA students. The cocktail hour will be followed by an elegant three-course dinner and the presentation of MYA’s Golden Baton Award to Yo-Yo Ma. All proceeds from the Gala, including generous sponsorships from Baxter, Hollister and Walgreens, will benefit the music education, scholarship and outreach programs at Midwest Young Artists. Why should one attend the Crescendo Gala? According to Dr. Dennis, “It will be a FUN event, from beautiful location to the great food and live music.” “The focus of the event will be on supporting youth in music education in our communities, just as Yo-Yo Ma has done. Attending the Crescendo Gala will allow MYA to continue to further its mission to build a home with the power of music to enrich the lives of students and the community.”
