Patrick McGuire and Classmates Race for Charity

This past Sunday in Brooklyn, NY, cellist and From the Top alum Patrick McGuire ran a 5k race with 22 fellow Juilliard musicians to help support the organization Music That Heals (MTH). Founded in 1997, MTH brings musicians into hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, and treatment centers to perform for seriously ill children and adults all across the city.  After a month of fundraising efforts, the Juilliard team was able to donate $800 to Music that Heals. They were the largest group at Sunday’s race, with three members managing to place in their individual age categories. Patrick was one of four From the Top alumni on the team, with cellist Madeline Fayette (Show 196), violinist Clara Lyon (Show 95), and cellist Thomas Mesa (Show 152) joining the cause.

Patrick appeared on Show 168, and has been involved in several arts leadership efforts since then. In 2009 we featured a blog series following his involvement with the The Arusha Arts Initiative: a two-week program created by Patrick and five of his Juilliard classmates that used the performing arts to empower students in Tanzania to create positive change in their communities. You can read more about the project on their website.
