Lamont Society Exclusive Donor Events 2018 - 2019


August 2018

Dear Lamont Society Donors,

I am delighted to share with you the enclosed announcement highlighting the donor appreciation events planned this year for Lamont Society donors.

In my brief time at Lamont I already recognize how special and important the Lamont Society is in the orbit of the Lamont School of Music. At other universities I have seen or worked with advisory committees of engaged community members, but the Lamont Society is different. It is a significant, bona fide organization with a proud history and heritage, a group that has made an appreciable difference in supporting and sustaining the work of faculty and students in a music program I am honored and proud to serve.

I look forward to meeting you at our first event on October 8. Thank you again for your donations and your support of the Lamont School of Music.
