Benefit Concert by Maggie & Matthew Schneider

June 22 | 5:00 pm

It was a lovely Saturday evening at the Baltimore Museum of Art, and melodic music filled the halls of the auditorium thanks to Maggie and Matthew. The Schneider children performed superbly with a quartet of Juilliard-trained musicians and world-class virtuosos, including the renowned Byung K. Kwak, to benefit the children at Kennedy Krieger Institute. This wonderful family-friendly event featured incredible musical performances, a reception with elegant yet fun hors d'oeuvres in the idyllic sculpture garden, and the opportunity to support a cause that benefits so many. 

Maggie and Matthew raised more than $9,000 this year! Proceeds benefitted the children and families at Kennedy Krieger Institute. We are so proud of Matthe and Maggie's performance and very impressed at their hard work and dedication. They brought so many people together to make a big difference for children seen at Kennedy Krieger, and we couldn't be happier to have them in our Kennedy Krieger family!

Two gifted children, Maggie and Matthew Schneider began their musical training at 18 months at the Peabody Institute in Baltimore. Now, at the ages of 9 and 8, they are training with Byung K. Kwak, current professor and pre-college faculty member at the Manhattan School of Music and a legendary violinist and instructor. Every year, the children donate their time and talents by performing a concert with the philanthropic goal of supporting childhood-related noble causes. Driven by Maggie and Matthew's hard work, Mr. Kwak and other world-class musicians are joining to help these two young philanthropic hearts. For these children, their focus is not advertising their talents, but to provide for their community, and encourage others in their generation to follow suit. This event is sponsored by SASPM.
