Littleton, MA

Indian Hill Music has received a generous $200,000 gift for its Music School Scholarship Endowment from an anonymous donor. This surprise gift augments Indian Hill’s scholarship endowment by 50%, enabling it to increase distributions and meet the expressed need of more students of all ages and musical abilities. In recent years, the Music School has been awarding over $40,000 in need-based scholarships to students in its service area annually.

IH Executive Director, Susan Randazzo, said, “Indian Hill believes that all people, regardless of economic circumstances, should have the opportunity to participate in making music. On behalf of the students who will benefit from this generosity, we are deeply grateful for this amazing gift.” Michael Havay, IH Director of Education, also commented on the gift’s impact: “The need for financial assistance is always much greater than our resources. This incredible donation means we can expand our reach and serve our growing community more fully. I wish I could express personally to our benefactor the many wonderful stories of changed lives that will come because of this gift.”
