Proceeds from the event benefit the Miles Applebaum Music Scholarship Fund, established to honor and remember Miles Applebaum. A guitar student at Lagond Music School, Miles continued to pursue his passion in music with a scholarship at the Boyer School of Music and Dance at Temple University. During Miles' year studying music abroad, his studies were interrupted by an onset of symptoms associated with trauma and depression. The depth of Miles' emotional pain proved too powerful for his gentle soul causing him to take his life at 21. The scholarship was established in 2016 to carry on Miles' dream of providing aspiring musicians who otherwise may not have the resources to attend, an opportunity to ignite their passion and study music at Lagond Music School. Half of the proceeds from the evening will also benefit The Mental Health Association of Westchester, a community-based non-profit that provides behavioral health services for more than 12,000 children, teenagers, adults and families each year.
Thank you for your interest and we hope to see you at our next event!
