Enhancing community life through music

MEF is dedicated to enhancing community life and enriching individual musicians through music education, chamber music, festivals and financial assistance. 

Support MEF's 2019-2020 programs by making a tax-deductible donation (See Donate button upper right)

and/or by attending the fall “Wine and Song” or Spring “Catch the Bus to Camp” fundraisers.

Supporting MEF provides excellence in music education and promotes positive community engagement.

Our primary service (among many) to the community are our annual MEF music camps. In 2019, we had 170 Junior High and High School students attend our camps. Plans are in the works for the MEF 2020 camps. MEF received a City of Tempe $8500 Community Arts Grant for summer 2020!
