Friends of Music

Members of Gustavus Friends of Music support, celebrate, and advance student and faculty musicians at the College. Our mission is to ensure the strong tradition of music excellence and provide opportunities for all students who want to express themselves through music.

Through annual memberships and other gifts, we provide funds for music scholarships and ensemble tours. Members engage with students and faculty by attending performances, traveling on ensemble companion tours, and serving as mentors.

There is a variety of standard membership levels available. For individuals interested in establishing an endowment and/or documenting a planned gift to support music at Gustavus, a Lifetime membership is available. For more information on the Lifetime membership option, please contact Jennifer Vickerman, Gift Planner ’97 or call 1-800-726-6192.
