Duquesne Musical Associates

The Mary Pappert School of Music and its students are a vital part of Pittsburgh's vibrant cultural community, presenting more than 200 performances each year on campus, in our city, and across the region. Many of you attend our events each year, and we are most grateful for your support. We invite you to take your support a step further and become a member of the new Duquesne Musical Associates.

The Duquesne Musical Associates include loyal patrons of the Mary Pappert School of Music. Funds raised by this group directly benefit all music students, regardless of degree or applied area of study. Through your generous support, we can assist our students with expenses pertaining to ongoing professional development activities, including: travel assistance to and from competitions and professional conferences, festivals, organization memberships, and conference fees. Additionally, your donation will enable us to enhance the already outstanding education and training provided our students through professional artist-teacher-scholar residencies in the school, permitting further mentorship opportunities for our students through guest performances, lectures, residencies, and master classes. 

Please join us as a Duquesne Musical Associate. Together, we can provide opportunities essential to the success of our students.

On behalf of our students, we thank you for your consideration and generosity.
