Friends of Music
Friends of Music is a network of alumni, parents, and friends who seek to make a difference in the lives of student-musicians, to create opportunities for musicians to reach their potential through experiences unique to Gustavus.
- Provide funding for the Jussi Björling Music Scholarships, which are awarded to music students with extraordinary talent and potential for success;
- Underwrite ensemble tours that complement each musician's course of study and strengthen Gustavus' visibility in the larger community;
- Lay the foundation for continued success and future growth of the Department of Music.
We achieve these goals by contributing to current year scholarships and the ensemble touring fund, as well as looking to the future by contributing to endowments for these initiatives.
