About Music Marathon 2023

The Musical Offering is a musical home for beginners to bloom and for more experienced musicians to explore their craft. Since the MO's inception in 2000, the school has continued to expand and evolve. One thing has always remained true: our commitment to the growth and development of the individual and community. Through its high quality music instruction, opportunities, and performances, The Musical Offering provides a vital service to the community, enriching the lives of our students and the citizens of Evanston and beyond.

As The Musical Offering celebrates how far we've come, we also look forward to prepare for the future with our annual Music Marathon fundraiser and performance event with a goal to raise $12,000. Every dollar raised will go directly to helping us achieve our 2023/2024 priorities that include:

  • Supporting new programming such as our new musical theatre training program for middle school students, Junior MO Show.

  • Welcoming guest artists and musicians to perform, teach masterclasses, and interact with Musical Offering students.

  • Continuing to increase our scholarship fund to provide a more substantial number of scholarships for the 2023/24 academic year.

  • Upgrading existing pianos with new instruments.

Investment in these Musical Offering priorities will help the school continue to provide a supportive and nurturing environment in which students, teachers, and all lovers of music can explore and deepen their relationship with music and self expression. Please consider making a donation to The Musical Offering Music Marathon 2023.


The MO is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and donations are 100% tax deductible. We rely on donations to help us continue and expand our mission to provide high-quality music education and performance in a community-centered environment. Our recommended fundraising goal per student is $75
