The Jon T. Hirschoff Scholarship Fund

The Jon T. Hirschoff Scholarship Fund was created by his family to honor the former NMS board president, also an accomplished pianist who studied with faculty member Istvan B’Racz. The fund, which continues to grow, will provide a talented voice or piano student the gift of musical instruction each year, celebrating Hirshoff’s enthusiastic love of music in perpetuity!

Endowments like the Hirschoff Scholarship Fund play a huge role in facilitating NMS’s mission, providing financial support for promising students who may not have been able to afford musical instruction otherwise. You can help us increase the number of opportunities for students to benefit by making a contribution to this ongoing endowment fund.
