2023 LFSF Auction Gala | Fête de la musique


Vous avez été formidables!

Our guests and online supporters are fantastic! 

Thank you to the parent, staff, and student VOLUNTEERS without whom this cannot be a game-changing event! The LFSF community came together in a festive atmosphere for the students.

Together we raised over $465,000, with $200,000 directed towards the music program and the remaining funds allocated to operations, finance financial aid, field trips, technology, and artists & authors in residence.

Music united us, on March 25th as we celebrated and enjoyed music; our goals are for LFSF students to discover and make music. Through the music program, we want music to be a meaningful part of student's life now and for the future.

Why is music education so important?

There are almost as many reasons to learn music as there are types of music to love. Musical training helps develop language, reasoning, and memory. Practicing with musical instruments increases coordination. Through music, children learn teamwork. Learning to play pieces of music gives a sense of achievement and builds confidence. It can teach discipline and be relaxing. Music builds imagination and intellectual curiosity. 


At the Auction Gala Fête de la Musique, each time guests raised their bidding number, they helped

  • Purchase instruments

  • Equip the music rooms with storage and sound systems

  • Offer more classes: Youth Ensemble, Music Composition, Musique et Paroles

  • Support Choirs on all campuses

  • Underwrite Student Performances such as musicals, bands, and band touring

  • Expand AES musical extracurricular activities

  • Take students to shows


Fund for the future is a thematic, actionable fundraising initiative that directly impacts student experience and is implemented over the course of several years.
