Support outstanding scholarship and inspiring performances

Donations made to the University of Chicago Department of Music help to defray the costs associated with research and composition for talented graduate and undergraduate students in the department. The department’s burgeoning performance program is also heavily supported by individual contributions. The generosity of the department’s donors allows more than 700 students each year to participate in four choirs, two orchestras, two jazz ensembles, a South Asian instrumental and vocal ensemble, a Middle East music ensemble, an early music ensemble, a wind ensemble, and programs in chamber music, piano and voice.
