About Our Auction
MRP is proud to celebrate its 20th Anniversary Gala! Originally scheduled for our 20th concert season, due to Covid-19, we decided to take our in-person Gala dinner party, auction and Jazz Concert online virtually (minus the dinner and schmoozing right now....just to stay safe!). Currently in our 21st concert season, we are offering all concerts and kiddie programs virtually and FREE, due to the generous support of our sponsors and friends like you!
All auction proceeds will pay for artist fees, venue rentals and sound engineering services for this year's virtual performances. And remember, all regularly scheduled concerts and kiddie programs have been FREE this year and will continue to be free until we are able to safely conduct live events again.
Our concerts provide a platform for upcoming young and established artists and showcasing new music by emerging composers, particularly those who have an affiliation with NYC and our home borough of Queens.
MRP fulfills its educational outreach mission with its Community Concerts for Kids, a free interactive, educational series for children and families ages 4 and up, led by teaching artists Beata Moon and MRP Artistic Director Barbara Podgurski.
