Celebrating Adrien Finlay!

Join us this August to celebrate Adrien’s 10th anniversary as Music Worcester’s Executive Director

100+ donors are being sought at $100+ to meet a matching challenge that has been issued to supporters at-large.

Music Worcester’s Board of Directors is pleased to announce a day of giving on August 1, 2022, to celebrate Adrien Finlay’s 10th anniversary as Executive Director. All gifts will support the organization’s Education Endowment Fund, which will be renamed the Adrien C. Finlay Education Fund in honor of his tenure with Music Worcester.

Adrien’s first day at Music Worcester was August 1, 2012, and we are celebrating, thanks to two anonymous donors coming together to create a $10,000 matching challenge for August 1st this year. A successful match will mean $20,000+ raised to help grow the new Adrien C. Finlay Education Fund. This fund will support Music Worcester’s educational activities and especially the next artist-in-residence in 2023, violinist Vijay Gupta.

This day of giving is part of a larger capital campaign currently underway at Music Worcester, Campaign 2025.
