In conjunction with the Gala, the School will publish a commemorative Journal which serves as a yearbook for the students and their families. Contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
Early Childhood Class Pages
A special part of the publication includes Early Childhood group class photos. Each class typically places a full-page class picture in the Gala Journal, and each family usually shares the cost by contributing $75 per child, per class, which includes a special framed copy of the photo. Class page donations can be made by check (payable to Diller-Quaile), cash, or online.
The Gala Journal will contain special “Tributes” to individual students from parents, grandparents, and relatives. Placing a personal Tribute is a wonderful way for a family member to publicly recognize a student’s musical and artistic efforts at Diller-Quaile and/or thank a special teacher.

Corporate Partners are invited to place a corporate advertisement in this year’s Gala Journal. Placing an advertisement is an effective way for your business to reach a large group of local families, while at the same time showing your support for Diller-Quaile—an important cultural and educational resource in our community.
Gala proceeds help underwrite the need-based Scholarship Fund, ensuring that quality music education is accessible to all who seek it, and fund the School’s six music education community music programs that serve approximately 1,000 underserved children and adults in New York City.
