Giving to the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music

Reid-FurlanettoReid Furlanetto
Anna Chmiel Clarinet Scholarship recipient

“Being the recipient of the Anna Chmiel Memorial Scholarship has allowed me to pursue my dreams and future career. With this scholarship, I was able to focus on perfecting my skills rather than worrying about financial issues. It has also alleviated these worries and concerns from my parents’ minds.”

Thank you!

We would like to acknowledge the support the School receives from our donors and friends who are as passionate as we are to provide students with the best possible music education experience.

Philanthropy plays a major role in our ability to extend and enhance our teaching and learning, research and student support capabilities.

Our donors support a breadth of initiatives including student prizes, undergraduate and post-graduate scholarships, performance training programs and buildings and facilities which include our new practice rooms. Many of these initiatives would not have been possible without your support.
