Join Friends of the School of Music for a special Musical Feast

Celebrate the Friends 25th anniversary on Saturday, Feb. 11

Love is in the air as we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Friends of the School of Music. You’re invited to a Valentine’s musical treat and silent auction to raise scholarship funds for music students.

The elegant event at 300 Senate Street takes place Saturday, February 11 beginning with cocktails at 6:00 p.m. and dinner by chef Bertrand Gilli at 7:00 p.m. At 8:00 p.m. enjoy an evening of lovely music, perfect for Valentine’s Day, performed by members of our renowned music faculty – three husband and wife duos:
Jennifer Parker-Harley, flute, & Michael Harley, bassoon
Lynn Kompass & Phillip Bush, piano
Rachel Calloway, mezzo-soprano, & Ari Streisfeld, violin

A special feature this year is a silent auction. You can bid on the opportunity to commission a love song for your Valentine composed by Dean Harding, to conduct the USC Symphony Orchestra, and much more!
