This Month in Music For Everyone:


The Great Big Piano Party Returns to a NEW Location (Rock Lititz) on April 28th

On April 28th, Music For Everyone will host the “Great Big Piano Party” presented by Benchmark Construction Company, Inc.. The event will celebrate nine years of magical musical street scenes in Lancaster through “Keys for the City”. Music For Everyone often characterizes itself as “not being your grandmother’s non-profit”, in reference to the grassroots and unique ways the organization operates. The Great Big Piano Party is the embodiment of this mentality, combining stellar entertainment, food, and beverages with the fun and fonky vibe that MFE is so well known for producing. For this year’s event, we are thrilled to announce that we will be teaming up with Rock Lititz‘s Pod 2, to create an unforgettable evening of music, dance, food, and drink.

The Great Big Piano Party will be held at Pod 2 (201 Rock Lititz Blvd.)  from 6:30 – 10:30pm This truly will be a one of a kind experience for our guests and supporters.

Tickets are on sale now! Get yours at: https://gbpp2018.eventbrite.com In true MFE fashion, this event will be so #FUNKY that it is #FONKY!

The “C-Note”: A New Way To Support Keys For The City!

Always wanted to do your part to support one of Lancaster’s most unique, fun, and fonky public arts projects, but couldn’t afford $3,000 to sponsor a piano or $500 to help sponsor the MFE Community Piano? NOW IS YOUR CHANCE to be part of bringing Keys For The City to Lancaster again this summer for a $100 donation. That’s Right! We are looking for sponsors of the MFE “C-Note” piano. For $100 your name will be incorporated into the design of the piano and those funds will be applied to MFE’s annual instrument grant program. If interested please contact John Gerdy.

MFE and the Willie Marble Xperience Tellus360 Concert Series

Music For Everyone has joined forces with The mysteriously swampadelic Willie Marble Xperience and Tellus360 in a concert series to benefit Lancaster non-profit organizations. This month’s concert we’re changing it up a bit. One of our members, Gary Miller, just got out of the hospital after breaking both of his hips. While most of his medical expenses are covered, there are additional services that he can use to help in his recovery. The WMX show will be held on April 26th.

Doors will be at 7:00pm and the show will begin at 8:00pm. The event is for ages 21+ and admission is a suggested donation of $10.
