For 30 years, the Friends of the School of Music have raised more than three-quarters of a million dollars for scholarship support for students of the School of Music. The Musical Feast has been a staple each year to raise those funds.
On Thursday evening, April 14, 2022, the entire Koger Center for the Arts showcased our students’ talent. Positioned in varied spaces throughout the Koger Center, from the mainstage to the lobby, our accomplished students brought music to our patrons who enjoyed food and drink as varied as the locations and the performances.
Proceeds fund scholarships for students of the School of Music. These scholarships make an incredible impact on our students’ academic lives and help them achieve their dreams of making a difference in the world through music. We hope you will join us for the 2023 Musical Feast!
