This Tosco Music Impact Report reviews our mission and programs after an incredibly unprecedented year. Thank you to everyone who helped make Tosco Music's impact possible!
With a joyous love of song and an inviting spirit, Tosco Music is breaking down the barriers between performers and audiences to celebrate the incredible power of music and bring people together.
More than 30 years ago, Tosco Music was born out of a love of two things: music and community. What started with a circle of friends gathering in my living room to share songs has grown into a nonprofit organization, and spread like never before. We’ve seen an increase in diversity in every way, in our performers, scholarship applicants, and audiences.
This past year, we worked with more than 300 musicians and presented 4 Tosco Music Parties at Knight Theater. Our community outreach programs grew to 103 events at 27 different locations, including our monthly open mic, and performances at senior communities.
We expanded our musician support initiatives by awarding over $12,000 in music scholarships, sending 28 students and young adults to band camps and workshops, helping with music lessons, providing instruments, and much more.
We also presented our annual Beatles festival, FabFest, where fans from across the Southeast come together to celebrate the music of the Beatles.
None of this would have been possible without you.
As we look ahead, we have many wonderful events and opportunities in the works, and we need you like never before. So, I humbly ask you, whether you’ve supported us in the past, or are considering doing so for the first time, to partner with us in cultivating local music of all genres, musicians of all ages, and community from all backgrounds…one song at a time.
Thank you for believing, thank you for giving, thank you for your support. It’s always been, and continues to be, all about the music and community.

-John Tosco, Founder & Executive Director
