Annual Sing-a-Thon/Play-a-Thon is July 27

July 8, 2019 – The annual Sing-a-Thon/Play-a-Thon hosted by the Dutchess Community College Academy of Music will be held Saturday, July 27 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the James and Betty Hall Theatre on the main DCC campus in Poughkeepsie. The Academy of Music offers both credit and credit-free classes for students of all ages.

The event – at which DCC students, faculty and community members perform – benefits the MusicLink Scholarship Fund, which provides free or low-cost music lessons to local students who otherwise could not afford them. While attendance is free, tax-deductible donations to MusicLink will gladly be accepted at the door. The event also will feature a 50/50 raffle, and both attendees and performers will receive a 10% discount on one fall 2019 credit-free group class of their choice offered by the Academy.

The eclectic recital will feature pieces performed on piano, guitar, bass, violin, cello, ukulele and other instruments, as well as vocal soloists and various ensembles.

In addition to fundraisers such as the Sing-a-Thon/Play-a-Thon, MusicLink is supported by funding from long-time DCC benefactor Allyn J. Washington, The Bentley Fund and the Kanter Kallman Foundation.

Those interested in performing in the show or receiving more information should email laura.doe@sunydutchess.edu or call (845) 431-8916.
