Lamont Society Donors Supporting #DULamontCommunity
During this extraordinary year we enjoyed outstanding performances and exciting live participation in classes and rehearsals. When the campus closed, we experienced performances from homes on social media and rose to the challenge of pivoting to online classes.
Our students, faculty and staff, supported by our alumni, parents and donors, are the #DULamontCommunity. We’ll be back on our stages and in our classrooms someday soon, stronger and more connected than ever!
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.
We enter this coming year after one that none of us ever imagined. While we were restricted from performing concerts, teaching classes in person, and enjoying our shared presence in the Newman Center, our community thrived through outreach, creativity, and dedication to our students and our art. We remained committed to that spark that makes Lamont such a special community.Keith Ward Director, Lamont School of Music

During my first year as President of the Lamont Society, our students triumphed on stage in concert after concert. When everything changed during the pandemic, students, faculty and staff made online classes work and even had time to make sure that Lamont Society appreciation events thrived with the online Lunch@Lamont series.Mark E. Barczuk (MBA '88) President, Lamont Society
Now it's our turn to support them with our donations!
