"Never Underestimate the power of a small group of committed people"
As we launch this website, first of all we want to say thank to all who have participated in Friends of Music at BHSU and a special thanks to our donors. Without our donors we would not have been able to give the many scholarships to BHSU music students and participate so fully in the encouragement of music education.

“I believe our mission is more about helping students realize their potential as musicians. We need to find ways to encourage them to engage with the culture, as allies and ambassadors for the arts. It’s important that our passion for music education and appreciation goes beyond self-gratification to improving the human condition”

Margaret Wengert, Friends of Music
