The Perlman Music Program (PMP) is one of 919 national nonprofit organizations that recently received a $50,000 grant from the National Endowment of the Arts (NEA). The grant will support the Program's signature Summer Music Program held on Shelter Island, which is a seven-week sleep-away program for children aged 12 to 18 who are experts of the violin, viola, cello, and bass.

"I'm pleased to be able to share the news of our support through Art Works including the award to The Perlman Music Program," said Jane Chu, National Endowment of the Arts Chairman. "The arts foster value, connection, creativity and innovation for the American people and these recommended grants demonstrate those attributes and affirm that the arts are part of our everyday lives."

The Perlman Music Program was founded by Toby Perlman and is led by Itzhak Perlman. Their world-class faculty mentor participants, who receive private lessons and individual practice time as well as ensemble rehearsals and performance opportunities, all of which help students with sight-singing and ear training.

This marks the 8th consecutive year that the NEA has supported the program, and PMP is "honored by the long-term support," said Toby Perlman, Founder and Director. "This year's increased grant award attests to the extraordinary spirit of our program. The funding will enable us to do what we do best: support the next generation of classical musicians."
