Dear BMS family and friends,

As we kick off an exciting new school year, we are thrilled to formally invite you to our St. Felix Street Centennial Gala: celebrating 100 years at our location on St. Felix Street! The event is on Thursday, October 25 (6pm-10pm), at the Dumbo Loft. Our theme is the commitment to cultural, ethnic, and economic diversity that BMS has sustained over the past 100 years and the relevance of our mission to provide access to music and performing arts education in NYC today. We have a special parent rate for tickets, but availability is limited, so act fast, and invite your friends!

Click here for an invitation packet which includes details about the event.

We are also seeking silent auction items to help raise money for student scholarships and infrastructure needs. Please email Kevin Kay, Gala Coordinator, at if you can contribute anything. As a reminder, we are a non-profit and therefore all contributions are tax deductible. We hope that you are able to join us for a fantastic night of music, food, and celebration!

For further questions, please reach out to Kevin Kay at the email above or our new Director of Development, John Eckstein Jr, at

Musically yours,

The BMS Development Team

John Jr, Cameo Brown, Kevin Kay
