The Music for Hope: A Charitable Recital is a recital to raise funds to support piano lessons for students in need (including NEPTA students). Its creation was inspired by the crossroads of COVID-19 and racial injustice to provide hope through music. 100% of donations received beyond the recital registration fee will go toward this fund.
The NEPTA Competitions include the Mildred Freiberg Middle School Competition (grades 6, 7, 8), the Ruth Davidson Competition (grades 9 and 10) and the Alice Hamlet Competition (grades 11 and 12).
