The Mission of The Conservatory of Central Illinois
The Conservatory of Central Illinois provides opportunities for quality music education and experiences in East Central Illinois. We promote a lifelong appreciation of and interest in music in the community, welcoming everyone regardless of ability, age, race, ethnic, origin, religion, or financial circumstances. Serving as a resource for music education, The Conservatory is the only not-for-profit community music school in downstate Illinois.
The asking donation is $5 per minute of performance. I have 2 pieces that will take about 3 minutes to play. So, that would be $15 a donation. Would you all care to help a struggling musician and music school out? Come out and see a day's worth of incredible performers and me. Please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
