Cherniavsky Junior Club for the Performing Arts
The Cherniavsky Junior Club for the Performing Arts encourages young people's love for the performing arts through its funding program, Cherniavsky's Mr. Music Fund.
Jan Cherniavsky, a world-renowned concert pianist, founded the Cherniavsky Junior Club for the Performing Arts in 1967. Cherniavsky's Mr. Music Fund program has been enthusiastically received province wide, helping send hundreds of thousands of school-aged children to attend classical performances over the past 50 years. As Jan had hoped, the program has exposed children to the performing arts and allowed them to embrace music and the arts in their own lives.
The Cherniavsky Junior Club for the Performing Arts is run by a small group of passionate volunteers, many of whom are descendants of Jan Cherniavsky. Demand for the Mr. Music program continues to outpace available funds and your donations will help continue Jan's "Mr. Music" legacy for many more generations to come.
