Supporting the Arts

The Maud Powell Music Festival needs the support of community businesses and individuals to maintain and expand its vision of fine arts performances and education.

The Maud Powell Music Festival is funded completely through donations, grants and the support of businesses and individuals. Generous donations have allowed the festival to offer the Powell Festival Institute to young musicians at a fraction of the cost of other music camps. Donations have brought violinist Rachel Barton to the festival in 2002, flutist Doriot Dwyer in 2003, Broadway performer Ron Sharpe in 2004, trumpeter Randy Grabowski in 2005, singer Karen Huffstodt in 2006 and pianist Li-Shan Hung in 2007.

With the help of believers in the importance of the Fine Arts, the Maud Powell Music Festival will continue to present exciting events. Everyones help is needed.
