A Gift For Music hosts several performances throughout the school year. Our performances bring our student musicians together to showcase what they have learned all year! Stay tuned for information on our next exciting performance.

Concerts and Events

After-School Program Performances

Our after-school violin students get a chance to show off what they have learned twice a year! During their elementary school’s winter and spring performances, our students take the stage to demonstrate for their families and friends the techniques, theory, musicianship, and songs that they have worked on throughout the semester!

Saturday Strings Orchestra Performances

Our Saturday Strings orchestra performances are a culmination of a semester’s worth of rehearsals from our five distinct ensembles. Showcasing the artistry and commitment of our dedicated student musicians, these concerts entertain and delight audiences with a varied musical selection from folk and fiddle tunes to Baroque and Classical favorites.

Musician’s Challenge

The Musician’s Challenge is an annual concerto competition for A Gift For Music students. The Musician’s Challenge is an opportunity for our students to grow as musicians as they practice a challenging solo piece that is performed for a panel of esteemed musicians from our community. The Musician’s Challenge winner is awarded a new instrument or bow from Muni Strings and performs their solo piece for an audience!


The Play-a-Thon is A Gift For Music’s signature fundraising event. Featuring our students, staff, alumni, and special guests, this is an exciting, annual marathon performance that you don’t want to miss!
