The Stecher and Horowitz Foundation

History

The Stecher and Horowitz Foundation, a non-profit organization, serves as an incubator of talent in the world of classical music, discovering and presenting remarkable young pianists. An outgrowth of The Stecher and Horowitz School of the Arts, Nassau County’s leading conservatory of music from 1960-1999, the Foundation continues Melvin Stecher and Norman Horowitz’s lifelong commitment to music education. Inspired by the inquisitive faces passing through the doors of their school, and concerned about the future of the aspiring musicians they trained, they created a visionary non-profit organization to mentor, support and inspire young musicians worldwide. Additionally, the Foundation helps to sustain and preserve the essence of our cultural life through audience development and community engagement.
