Tonight, So Bright!

Friday, November 4, 2016 - 6:30pm

Lacuna Lofts, 2150 S. Canalport Ave, Chicago, IL 60608

Paying homage to four decades of musical impact and looking forward to an even brighter future, Tonight, So Bright! featured 5 performances from TPMS student artists, culminating in an unforgettable finale rendition of the Smashing Pumpkins hit song, Tonight Tonight.

Over 350 guests gathered at Lacuna Lofts to celebrate our 40th Anniversary. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, donors and attendees we raised an unprecedented $230,000! This covers a significant part of our operating costs enabling us to serve over 600 students through tuition-free music programs this year. 

Thanks to our incredible community. Student, parents, volunteers, board, staff, advocates and supporters - you inspire us! It is because of you that we continue to transform young lives through the power of music education. 

Our latest video showcases where we've been and where we're headed - watch and be inspired!
