The Friends Connection

Friends will be your connection with today’s music students—tomorrow’s music educators, composers and performers. The Friends of the Conservatory has been established to:

  • Communicate with the community, alumni, and friends of Winthrop through the programs of the Department of Music.
  • Enrich the diverse cultural life in York and surrounding counties of the Carolinas by establishing a Friends of the Conservatory Concert Series.
  • Encourage membership in Friends.
  • Support the Department of Music at Winthrop with gifts and bequests to the Winthrop University Foundation on behalf of the Department.
