The Kretzer Music Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the gift of music to children and seniors. We are passionate about music being a part of every child’s life and believe that any child who desires it should have access to a musical instrument, therefore positively enriching lives. We provide performance opportunities where young musicians can share their talents with hospitalized children and seniors, while honing their skills. Scholarships are provided to children who cannot afford music lessons and the foundation has donated more than 40 pianos to needy children and children’s charities.
