*** 2019 – 2020 *** 



Our Annual Campaign has come to a close and we’re thrilled to report that we’ve not only reached, but surpassed our highest goal ever, bringing in $25,405.72 for the support of our Free Class and Workshop Initiative!! This initiative gives all Collective students free access to our renowned classes & workshops.

The best part about the Annual Campaign is the collective effort it takes to reach this goal. Our average donation was less than $50, and we’re so excited to see the growth in the network of supporters who believe in our mission. We’re grateful for all the ways we are able to keep expanding – in the number of students we serve, in the partnerships we create with area businesses and individuals, and in the exceptional performances, we are able to give back to our community.

Whether you’re a first time donor or a long-time partner, we’re so grateful for your gift. We truly could not continue our work without you.

From the staff, teachers, and students at the Uptown Music Collective


Each year since 2006 the Uptown Music Collective has run its Annual Fundraising Campaign, which has supported many of the school’s projects and programs. As of three years ago, we have changed the focus of our Annual Campaign to directly support the Collective’s Free Class and Workshop Initiative.

This initiative gives all Collective students FREE ACCESS to our renowned classes & workshops.
