An annual fundraiser to benefit EMP's youth programs, EMP's Founders Award features legendary performers who have made substantial contributions to the field of music.
EMP Museum presented its seventh annual Founders Award to Crosby, Stills & Nash, an honor given to artists who have made outstanding contributions in music.
Since its inception in 2007, the EMP Founders Award Celebration has raised nearly $1.5 million in support of vital youth programming, offering accessible music education to more than 30,000 schoolchildren annually. Programs include Artists in Resonance, educator resource development, school field trips, summer camps, scholarship programs, and critical performance opportunities.
