Our Wind Orchestra heads for Carnegie Hall

Hassadna’s Senior Wind Orchestra, conducted by Sagit Mazus, has been chosen to participate with five other orchestras in a prestigious international competition at Carnegie Hall in April 2020. As well as being a thrilling opportunity for individual players, this will motivate the orchestra to attain an even higher level of excellence; raise Hassadna’s international profile; and provide Israel with 40 plus outstanding ambassadors to the USA. Please help us to raise $90,000 and make this dream come true.

Scholarships

The Hassadna Scholarship Fund is a key component of the Conservatory; through it, high quality music education is available to every child with the desire to learn music.

We believe that education through arts makes a significant impact on the lives of all children and is particularly meaningful for the underprivileged. Through music, they express their feelings and identities, harness their inner creativity and bring beauty and happiness into their worlds. We are grateful to those who have made this dream a reality for so many of Jerusalem’s most special young people and invite you to participate in realizing this vision.

Music education is a long-term process that requires continuous financing to secure its viability and stability. Our comprehensive program, and the individualized approach we offer, is costly. While demand for participation continues to grow, our ability to provide scholarships to all students eager for this opportunity is limited by the amount of outside funding support we receive.

Since music education is a long term educational endeavor, we would be grateful if you would consider scholarship support for at least three years to help us fulfill our commitment to provide our students with high quality music education for the duration of their studies.

Scholarships include individual instruction, theory lessons, orchestra and chamber music, workshops and master classes. Transportation fees, home tutoring, provision of instruments and music equipment are provided as needed. Students receive personal and professional support in order to maximize their potential and ensure their musical development and success.
