Annual Gingerbread Holiday Concert benefits student musicians

Conservatory students preparing for a performance

In its 12 years, this community event has raised more than $650,000 for the conservatory’s talented and deserving student musicians who hail from around the world.

Held for the first time on campus, the 12th Annual Gingerbread Holiday Concert took to the stage of Lynn’s beautiful Keith C. and Elaine Johnson Wold Performing Arts Center. 

What has now become one of the area’s most beloved annual holiday traditions, this family-oriented concert was the brainchild of Margaret Mary and John Shuff, along with Pat and the late Harold Toppel.

Each year, this much-anticipated community event draws parents, grandparents and children together to celebrate the holidays and share a musical afternoon with friends and family.

Serving as the concert’s first co-chairs, the Shuffs and Toppels created the event as a scholarship fundraiser, while also sharing the gift of music with the community during the holiday season.

The 2014 concert was chaired by Deanna Wheeler and Barbie Block and presented by the Friends of the Conservatory to benefit the Lynn University Conservatory of Music, one of the finest conservatories of music within a university environment.
