Cherniavsky's 'Mr. Music' Fund

jan cherniavskyCherniavsky's "Mr. Music" Fund offers matching grants of up to $300 to assist schools in purchasing tickets for students to attend a wide range of classical and traditional music, opera, or ballet. Sponsored by the Cherniavsky Junior Club for the Performing Arts Society, the funding program was named after an endowment created by Jan Cherniavsky, a world-renowned classical pianist.

Each year, ArtStarts receives more applications than can be funded. As a result, grants are awarded through a lottery system. Successful applicants are notified within three weeks of the deadline. For full details, please download and read the application form and guidelines, available on our Forms & Deadlines page. Please note that in-school performances and workshops do not qualify for this funding. For more information, contact
