World-class musicians to play for the organization that helped them get their start

The Foundation for Enhancing Communities (TFEC) celebrates their centennial this month; supporting the philanthropic activities of donors wanting to positively impact communities.

Scholarships are a big part of TFEC initiatives, as they offer a proverbial “leg-up” to those with ambition, but with limited resources.

As part of the Centennial event TFEC will host a free concert at the Whitaker Center on Saturday, September 18 at 5pm., to honor past Joseph L. and Vivian E. Steele Music Scholarship recipients. The concert will feature five musicians playing individually, then a piece commissioned by TFEC and composed by Jeremy Gill, a freelance composer, conductor and pianist based in New York City.

Appearing on Smart Talk Friday to discuss the collaboration and TFEC are Janice Black, President and CEO, The Foundation for Enhancing Communities; Jeremy Gill, freelance composer, conductor and pianist and ToniMarie Marchioni, DMA, an oboist originally from Mechanicsburg.
