The Tony Adamo Fund for Music

*Application and donation links are found below*

Tony Adamo, son of Marisa Germano in our Admissions department, passed away suddenly at the age of 21 in the prime of his life. During his lifetime Tony was always drawn to music either through dance or musical instruments. His true love was playing the guitar and the music he could create with it. Tony was on a path to pursue a career that included music in order to live his passion. To honour the memory of Tony who loved life and music, the Tony Adamo Fund for Music was established in 2011 by his family.
