Friends of Music

Music and Theatre

The Friends of Music organization supports and serves the Edinboro University Music Department through promotion of events, donation of instruments and equipment, fundraising for scholarships and much more.

Our Role

The Friends of Music represents a large and energetic group that actively supports the Music and Theatre Department at Edinboro University. It was established in 2000 by a small group of faculty, alumni and friends of the university's Music and Theatre Department.

The organization seek to promote Music and Theatre Department performances; create and provide scholarships for talented students who may have financial needs; assist with and fund special projects; purchase instruments and equipment; sponsor guest artists; assist, fund and promote the Edinboro University Community Music School; and create endowments for professorships, visiting professors and performers and artists-in-residence.

The Friends of Music helped to purchase the pianos in the Dr. William P. Alexander Music Center Recital Hall and practice rooms, as well as the Steinway Grand Piano D that is now on the stage at Louis C. Cole Auditorium.
