Friends of the UK School of Music

The Friends of Music is a volunteer organization of music lovers dedicated to the advocacy and financial support for the University of Kentucky School of Music.

The UK School of Music is internationally recognized for excellence in performance, music education and research in music. With a low student-to-faculty ratio, the School provides personal attention with small classes and private applied instruction. Students across all divisions within the School frequently have opportunities to perform, study or present research throughout the U.S. and across the globe. The Friends of Music makes much of this student and faculty travel possible by making financial awards through an application process.

Membership contributions to the Friends of Music are fully tax deductible.
