“Give Day” at UC Davis
April 13, 2019
Three music funds are available to donate to on Give Day—
Shinkoskey Noon Concerts
From string quartets to electric guitars and percussionists, the Joy S. Shinkoskey Series of Noon Concerts brings music from artists of all genres to UC Davis. $5,000 Give Day challenged by Bret Hewitt.
Home to nearly half of all undergraduates at UC Davis — 40 percent of them the first in their families to attend a university — the College of Letters and Science is the largest and most diverse of the campus’s four colleges.
Music Lesson Fund
Unique to any undergraduate music student’s continuing education is the need for one-on-one instruction with a professional faculty affiliate. This endowment aims to both increase the number of minutes each student receives from 30 to 60 minutes per week, as well as completely offset student fees for this specialized instruction. $5,000 Give Day challenged by Anne Gray.
William E. Valente Music Scholarship
In honor and memory of the late Professor William E. Valente (1934–93) and his impact on the many students he taught, guided and inspired during his life as a music theory and composition teacher, chief undergraduate advisor for the Department of Music, and Conductor of the University Concert Band. Valente Scholarship gifts are challenged by Gregory Friedman.
