SHAR Music Partners with Michigan Music Alliance Artist Relief Fund

Michigan-based company to donate a portion of all sales in April to displaced area musicians.

Ann Arbor, MI, April 11, 2020 --( For over 60 years, SHAR Music has served the String music community from its home office in Ann Arbor. The company announced earlier this month, that it would donate a portion of all sales in April to musicians impacted by COVID-19 cancellations and closures. In partnership with the Michigan Musician’s Alliance, SHAR is committing support through April 30 to the Artist Relief Fund.

“We recognize the challenges facing displaced musicians, in today’s challenging climate,” said Tina Avsharian, COO of Shar Music. “We sought a way to give back to the community that has made us the business we are today, and the Michigan Music Alliance seemed the perfect opportunity to support local artists.”

“It allows our customers to purchase with a purpose.”

Michigan Music Alliance, a 501c3 non-profit serving the Michigan music community, initiated the Artist Relief Fund to address the growing needs of state-based musical artists whose incomes have been adversely affected by the global pandemic.

Per the MMA’s website, the fund supports “people who make income fully through gigs and freelance music work [who] are losing critical opportunities to support their well-being.” For more information or details on how to apply, please visit
“Performances may be on hold, but music isn’t canceled,” Tina continued. “We can do our part to ensure artists can play on – now and into the future. Together, we can make a difference.”
