Lamont Society

Spotlighting Lamont on the National Stage

Since 1983, the Lamont Society has provided financial support and promoted the mission, vision and activities within the community for the University of Denver's Lamont School of Music.

Your gifts support and sustain the excellence of our programs and the talent of our students, faculty and staff. Your donations and endowed funds account for more than 50 percent of our operating resources. This supports our ensembles, helps us purchase instruments, underwrites master classes and performances by guest artists, maintains scholarships, sends our ensembles on tour, and provides travel funds to students for summer festivals, competitions, and auditions.

To celebrate your generosity, you are invited to attend five or six exclusive events during the academic year. These events range from faculty recitals to a day of classes and rehearsals, and Showcase Lamont.

I am delighted to express my thanks to you, donors of the Lamont Society, for financially sustaining our work as we develop future generations of musicians. You play a vital role in supporting opportunities for them to flourish.
