The Primavera Fund
Envisioning a world in which every young musician is given the opportunity to succeed

Our Vision

Our Vision

The freedom to dream big.

 
 

Classical music is about the human condition through time. It reflects who we are, were, and could possibly be. It is the present, past, and future all at once. For children from disadvantaged communities, this is a godsend. 

Talented children have every right to have their voices heard in the world. They have something to say. They have a song to sing, a song that needs to be heard. The world suffers when creativity is silenced by assumptions, judgments, roadblocks, and financial barriers. We, those who love art, lose as much as they do.

 

I founded the Primavera Fund on the principle that good art should be supported. Full stop. Not because it looks a certain way, not because it has its own support network on which to rely, and not because it has already had ample opportunities to prove its worth. 

As a mentoring program that focuses on each artist in a holistic way, we ensure their path to success by relieving them of fear of failure. Our financial support is fully matched by our unwavering commitment to each Artist as an individual.
