The Anil T. Bharvaney Memorial Fund in Music Education is an endowment fund, which provides annual support for the Young Artist Program of Westminster Conservatory of Music:

  • improvisation and Jazz curriculum,
  • Scholarships for deserving students, and
  • enrichment activities for the program as a whole

Thanks in large part to the Bharvaney fund, Young Artist Program students were able to increase their studies of jazz and improvisation fourfold in the fund's first year. "Improvisation has been largely overlooked in the classical music student's education," commented Young Artist Program director, Alison Neely. "The great composers used improvisation daily as a cornerstone of their work, and we must educate our future musicians to return to improvisation as a source from which their own music can flow. We believe Mr. Bharvaney would have so appreciated the Young Artist Program and the doors it continues to open for our students, and we thank all those contributors who also believe in the program's work."

The Anil T. Bharvaney Memorial Fund will continue to grow over the years, and will help facilitate the dreams of many young musicians. It will serve as a lasting memorial of Anil Bharvaney--of his generosity, of his desire to support young people, and of his love for music.
