Turtle Bay Music School's PERFORM-A-THON to Kick Off with Jason Robert Brown, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and More, 5/15

Turtle Bay Music School's 10th Annual Perform-A-Thon will be held Friday, May 16th through Sunday, May 18th. The community music marathon opens on Thursday, May 15th with a Kickoff Concert and Reception, featuring performances by a trio from the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Mark O'Connor, Jason Robert Brown, and Sujari Britt. The evening honors Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ and the Herbert M. Citrin Foundation for their support. Kickoff Concert tickets are $100 for VIP table seating or give as you are able for concert seating.

Perform-A-Thon is the cornerstone of TBMS's annual fundraising campaign to support its free and low-cost music programming, including public school music education partnerships, outreach to community and senior centers, free public concert series, and scholarships and financial aid requests. With a fundraising goal of $100,000 for 2014, TBMS is grateful to Perform-A-Thon's sponsors and Kickoff Concert performers for their outstanding support.

The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra is a Grammy award-winning, innovative orchestra that places democracy at the center of the artistic process. Its musicians perform without a conductor and are involved in every aspect of the organization, lending a distinct empowerment and energy to their performances.

Critically acclaimed fiddler Mark O'Connor is known for his virtuoso performances, prolific compositions, and the Mark O'Connor Method, a string instrument technique for teachers and students. Mr. O'Connor has won two Grammy awards and collaborated with a range of accomplished artists, from Yo-Yo Ma to Alison Krauss.
