Poco a Poco is a federally registered 501(c)(3) organization. Any donation amount will be tax deductible. We thank you for your time and consideration.

 

Our top priority is to offer excellent training and performance opportunities for young musicians in a supportive and intimate environment, allowing them to explore new concepts alongside our top-notch faculty.

We strive to make the festival accessible for all: Your donation today allows us to accept these talented students, regardless of financial restraints, and also keeps our concerts free and open to the public. 

Thank you to everyone who donated in 2018, making our Summer Music Fest possible and a great success!

We are now accepting donations as we prepare for and plan our 2019 festival, to be held in Streator the week of June 9-15th, 2019.
