Friends of Music

Your Support is Music to Our Ears! Won’t you join us in supporting the Department of Music and making the musical dreams of our talented students come true?

Friends of Music are members of the CNU community who love the arts and annually support the Department of Music. Private gifts have an immediate impact by providing scholarship support, bringing celebrated professional musicians and scholars to campus, funding international travel for music performances, purchasing new instruments and equipment, and much more! Additionally, your support also helps to provide unique learning experiences for our students through master classes, workshop, performances and lectures.

CNU provides scholarships for all music majors meeting criteria, rewarding their hard work and dedication both on and off the stage. Competitive scholarships made possible by Friends of Music attract students with the talent and determination to succeed.

You can be the conductor of a student’s future and create harmony in their academic experience.  Please consider establishing a Named Annual Scholarship that you can personally name ($2,500 minimum contribution) and receive a special invitation to the President’s Annual Scholarship Luncheon in addition to Director’s Circle benefits.
