Committed to the enrichment of educational and artistic experiences for students at the Frost School of Music, philanthropists Roe and Penny Stamps established the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation Distinguished Visitors Series in 2003.  Guided by a profound interest in the arts, they continue to champion and support charitable endeavors in our community.

The purpose of this series is to offer students the opportunity to expand their artistic and intellectual growth by providing unmatched educational experiences that continue the University of Miami’s tradition of excellence.
