Friends of the School of Music sponsor a Musical Feast

The annual scholarship fundraising event takes place on February 1

Friends of the University of South Carolina School of Music have been helping students achieve their dreams since 1992. Since its inception, Friends have provided nearly half a million dollars to outstanding students of music at USC.

The much-anticipated annual Friends-sponsored Musical Feast event takes place on Saturday, February 1, 2014.

A highlight of the elegant sit-down dinner will be a feast of the musical kind as well. World-renowned pianist and associate professor Phillip Bush and the Graduate String Quartet will present a musical treat of fun and upbeat music, including music by Art Tatum, Ravel, Mozart, Schumann and Milhaud. Members of the Graduate String Quartet are Shr-Han Wu and Gisong You, violin; Chin-Wei Chang, viola; and Tzu-Ying Liao, cello.

“My ‘feast’ with the USC School of Music began in 1973. Forty years later this feast continues to nourish my passion for music through unparalleled excellence as an international presence for state of the art musician scholarship. It is a pleasure to be a part of affording outstanding young musicians the opportunity to experience the same blessings.” -- Friends board member Ann Wilson
