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
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.
"The Primavera Dream"
"When you are part of The Primavera Fund, you have everything." - Lily Mell, Violinist and Primavera Artist
More than a scholarship program, we provide:
Weekly private instruction with a world class teacher
The use of a professional grade instrument
Tuition for Youth Orchestra, chamber music, intensive summer programs and tours
Public performance opportunities in the community
Mentoring from successful professionals
Individual attention and goal-setting
Hard work + Support = Success!
The Primavera Artists have been accepted to world-renowned programs including Interlochen, Brevard Music Center, Kinhaven Music Center, and The Philadelphia Youth Orchestra, and have won prestigious prizes and competitions. Our first Primavera Artist to graduate high school will enter Rowan University as a Music Education major in the fall, with a full tuition scholarship. These are just some of the accomplishments that make our Artists very special!
"It's a huge net of support, and you never feel alone." - Zebadiah Coombs, Violist and Primavera Artist
