Cherish the Arts: It Takes a Village took place on June 13th. The event brought together five incredible honorees, and the Institute family, to recognize the role that these individuals have played in bringing our Capital Expansion to fruition.


This $15 million expansion plan will enable the Institute to build a state-of-the-art facility with dedicated dance, acting, band and visual arts studios, two piano labs, four practice rooms and a professional recording studio.

The event featured dynamic performances by Institute students and faculty, a delicious meal and open bar, and a word from our Institute graduates!



We thank our sponsors BCB Bank, McLaughlin and Stern, Perigon Wealth, and especially our long-time partner, Valley Bank for playing a leadership role.
