Connor Donohue Music Fellowship

It's hard to believe, but we're about to start the SEVENTH year of the Connor Donohue Music Fellowship.  We rely solely on donations from Connor's friends and family, so we're asking for your help to keep it going. 

The Fellowship was formed shortly after Connor's passing as a way to remember and honor our dear friend. It was important to us to offer more than just a one-time scholarship. Instead, we decided to continue Connor's legacy by creating a fellowship where students could share their love of music, learn from and help each other, and contribute to their community. In return, the Fellowship provides students with weekly private music lessons, master classes with top level musicians, and special trips and concerts.

In the past 6 years, the Fellowship has grown into more than we could have imagined. The first Fellow that we ever admitted into the program went on to be a music major in college, get a job teaching music in NJ, and return to become the leader of the Fellowship. 

The Fellowship is a recognized non-profit organization and relies solely on donations. Please take a moment to donate and help us continue spreading Connor's love of music and passion for teaching.
