Image for Third Street Music School Settlement Receives $100,000 Bequest

Jul 03, 2012
New York, NY

Third Street Music School Settlement (New York, NY) has received a generous $100,000 endowment gift from the Estate of Eda McFarlane Clark and The Bay & Paul Foundations. In honor of this gift, which is designed to support the growth of Third Street's piano department, Third Street has renamed its largest tuition-free honors enrichment program to The Eda McFarlane Clark Piano Certificate Program.

The Bay & Paul Foundation, a long time supporter of Third Street, helped to make this bequest possible. Third Street's dual goals of access and excellence, the School's high-quality programs, the faculty's commitment, and the progress and achievements of the students all contributed to the donors' wishes to create this legacy for Eda McFarlane Clark around the study of piano.
