Donations to Music for People
Music for People, a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit arts organization, relies on donations from members and friends to be able to keep serving our community of improvisers and to bring the experience of music improvisation to new places and people. Please consider making a tax deductible contribution to the organization or to the scholarship fund.
Emily Metcalf Scholarship Fund
The Emily Metcalf Scholarship Fund was founded after her passing in 2008 to honor Emily’s many contributions to Music for People. As David Darling’s first professional cello-playing improvisation student, Emily was among the pioneer group whose experiences shaped Music for People’s training program. She was an early graduate and staff member of the Musicianship and Leadership Program, where she was responsible for creating the Musicianship Track and a Children’s Program. Her many mentees and colleagues recall her kind heart and her capacity for deep listening and presence. In the time since her passing Music for People has seen an outpouring of loving remembrance in the form of generous donations.
