2020 Charity

Maryland Conservatory of Music

For 2020, the Paint and Powder Club has selected the Maryland Conservatory of Music as the charity for this year’s show.

The Maryland Conservatory of Music was founded in 2002 and is a non-profit organization that provides quality, accessible music training and experiences that develop creativity, self-confidence and achievement. MCM serves students age one to eighteen and adults. The Conservatory’s goals are to nurture students’ artistic expression as an extension of themselves, to foster positive character traits and life skills, and to establish community outreach programs throughout the state of Maryland. MCM’s Student Center for Life Enrichment (SCALE) focuses primarily on helping underprivileged children, at risk youth and children with developmental challenges such as autism, Attention Deficit Disorder and other learning challenges through music. The Conservatory has awarded thousands of dollars in scholarships to ensure that every child has the opportunity to benefit from music regardless of financial means.
