If Music Be the Food...

Non-perishable food/cash donations
he mission of “If Music Be the Food…” is to increase awareness and support for the hungry in the community through classical music performances of the highest caliber, to share beautiful music with the community, and to teach music students the importance of utilizing their art as a powerful vehicle for change. Members of the Eastman faculty, the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, other local professional musicians, distinguished international guests, and Eastman students join together and donate their time and talents for these concerts. All participants in every aspect of this endeavor volunteer their services and pay their own costs, so that all proceeds can go to the hungry via Foodlink. No tickets are sold for the concerts; rather, audience members are asked to bring non-perishable food items or cash donations for Foodlink as the price of admission. Last year’s concerts yielded nearly $2500 and 750 pounds of food for Foodlink and this year’s series is well on its way to surpassing last year’s totals.
