Friends of the School of Music

The Friends of the School of Music is a non-profit association which aims to be a source of practical and financial support to students of the ANU School of Music. We advance musical endeavours within the School and help foster its engagement with the Canberra community.

The Friends assist the School's pre-tertiary program by organising concerts to enable our young musicians to present their talents in public performances. We fund prizes to tertiary students for musical performance and academic achievement, and offer ad hoc grants for projects adding substance to their musical experience. We provide a Friends Transition Award to recent graduates to assist in the transition from formal study to a professional career in music.
