Dave Brumbaugh is a Bright Light.

Dave Brumbaugh, founder and executive director of the Uptown Music Collective earns his 2020 PPL Bright Light Award AND $10,000 from PPL Electric Utilities PPL Corporation representatives Tracie Logue Witter & Brenda Nichols on October 7th! 

During the presenting of the award, students read testimonials on the influence Dave has had on each of them. Dave Brumbaugh was chosen for his impact and inspiration on his students, alumni, staff, and the community. Out of over 300 applicants, Dave was in the top 10 from all over the state! 

This award truly kicked off our current Annual Campaign. We are constantly humbled and appreciate your support – as this year, the Uptown Music Collective is facing new challenges and changes as we navigate the execution of our programs through COVD-19 precautions. We’re going back to our roots, leaning on the development of creativity and work ethic in our students, and finding new ways to connect with our community. Donations ensure that we can keep moving forward. Beyond helping to fund our free class and workshop initiative, you’ll be supporting the entirety of the Collective’s programming,
right down to keeping the lights on. 

Please consider donating to continue supporting the Bright Light of Dave Brumbaugh and the Uptown Music Collective.
