An invitation from the President

2017 Jan Friedland letter

As the president of the Lamont Society Council, it is my pleasure and honor to represent each donor to the Lamont School of Music. I look forward to getting to know those of you I have not met and renewing friendships with donors I know.

Although we have a wonderful time at all of the exclusive events and concerts we attend, the Lamont Society is designed to support and enhance the DU experience of our music students with donations and encouragement. Your donation makes a real difference in the careers of our students.

You will receive invitations to very special events and recitals to show our appreciation for your donation. I look forward to enjoying the upcoming season with you.

Thank you,

Jan Friedland
President, Lamont Society

Your Donation

A donation to the DU Lamont School of Music will absolutely impact a student's time in Denver and enhance their future career in the arts. As a Lamont Society donor, you are invited to attend exclusive appreciation recitals and events this season.

Your generous contribution will help produce a special performance, purchase a unique musical instrument, help a deserving student with a scholarship or send a student to a summer or international festival. Donors make a difference with every single gift.

With an individual donation gift of $80 you become a Lamont Society donor and are welcomed into the Lamont Society. Donations for couples (or for an individual with a guest) start at $160.

A special donation of $250* rolls out the red carpet with an invitation to attend the sparkling black-tie Showcase Lamont concert and gala reception in the spring.
*(a couple or an individual with a guest) ($125 an individual)

We will be announcing this season's appreciation events in September. All donors will be invited to Day at Lamont in November and select donors to Showcase Lamont in May. We're sure new director Keith Ward will have some exciting and fresh new ideas for recitals and events during the season. Send in your donation by October 1 to ensure that you receive your first invitation.
