Friends of Music

Friends of Music

The Gustavus Friends of Music is a network of alumni, parents, and friends who seek to make a difference in the lives of student-musicians at Gustavus, to create opportunities, to open new doors.


  • to provide funding for the Jussi Björling Music Scholarships, which are awarded to music students with extraordinary talent and potential for success;
  • to underwrite ensemble tours that complement each musician's course of study and strengthen Gustavus' visibility in the larger community; and
  • to lay the foundation for continued success and future growth of the Department of Music.

At Gustavus, the gift of music is multiplied. Music at Gustavus, in the form of coursework and performances, becomes Music from Gustavus—those professors, conductors, performers, and others who have music-related vocations or avocations and who do so much to enrich their communities everywhere.
