The Primavera Fund removes the financial barriers between talented young musicians and the education that they deserve. 

"You'll walk by more talent on the street every day than you'll ever see on stage." - David Segal, Co-Founder and President

Our Mission

We identify, mentor, and underwrite the artistic endeavors of young musicians whose talent surpasses their financial means. We create agents of change in communities as future performers, teachers, leaders, and role-models.

We believe that talent is a gift to the world, and should never be lost to financial uncertainty.
