  • To provide admission-free, live, quality music, performed by professional musicians to the public of all backgrounds throughout the United States and Canada.
  • We seek to enrich the lives of the general public, young and old, through music and to contribute to the public's knowledge and appreciation of music.
  • To make music and music education an exciting experience and to expand it to every child's life experience.
The MPTF has been providing grants to help create free music performances for the public's entertainment and education for over 65 years. Almost all of their events are co-sponsored, and require the involvement of local participants that include arts councils, symphonic organizations, municipalities, veterans groups, school systems, and healthcare organizations, among others. The organization also funds Music in the Schools programs.
