About Reading Musical Foundation

RMF believes that every child who wishes to be a musician should have the opportunity to do so. In addition to building a lifelong appreciation of the arts, music teaches necessary skills that build creativity, discipline, self-perseverance, self-expression and teamwork. We also believe live music performance makes our community stronger by connecting individuals and making Greater Reading attractive to those in our region and beyond.


Our annual efforts to support music education and appreciation include:

• Investing more than $200,000 each year in scholarships for Berks County student musicians, with awards responding to financial need outweighing audition-based awards.

• Support area music education and appreciation programs with more than $300,000 in program grants to two dozen local music organizations.

• Advocating for Berks County’s strong music network, from strengthening the capacity of school music programs to economic development found in the arts as well as community access to concerts and ensembles.

• Ensuring quality instruments are available to students, regardless of their ability to afford them, through Operation Replay, RMF’s instrument recycling program sponsored by Zeswitz Music.
