Friends of the KU School of Music 

KU School of Music Friends ProgramThe Friends of the KU School of Music are a community of alumni, parents, friends and students who are dedicated to providing annual financial and advocacy support to the KU School of Music.

When you become a Friend of the School of Music, your unrestricted gift will help students and families discover the wonder of music through our world-class educational programs and hundreds of performances each year.

Your loyalty is invaluable in assisting KU musicians in realizing goals that would not otherwise be reachable. It is only through the support of friends like you that we have been able to offer scholarships, graduate teaching assistantships, travel support and professional-quality instruments to improve the musical experience for our students and faculty.

In addition to a free window decal to show your support for the School of Music Friends Program, your membership also grants you recognition in the programs for the year’s concert series. Plus, if you choose to join at the Patron level or above, you will receive tickets to the annual Collage Concert as our gift.
