Stamps Quartet & Quintets


Through the generosity of the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation, exceptional young artists at Frost perform in chamber music ensembles of the highest caliber including a string quartet, woodwind quintet, brass quintet and jazz quintet.

A unique and generous scholarship gift from the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation is significantly enhancing the undergraduate program at the University of Miami Frost School of Music.  The foundation is managed by longtime benefactors E. Roe Stamps IV (a UM trustee) and his wife, Penny Stamps. The Stamps Family Charitable Foundation Music Scholarship Fund allows the Frost School of Music to attract top student musicians who as part of their curricular program will form very special chamber ensembles.

These exceptional young artists will advance together throughout their studies at UM. In the first year, a group of five exceptional freshmen will participate in a jazz quintet. In year two of this program, four more will be admitted to study and participate in a string quartet. Five will participate in a woodwind quintet in the third year, and five will participate in a brass quintet in the fourth year.

Resources from both the Stamps Foundation and the University will fully fund tuition, and room and board for a total of 19 students. As part of their experience, students will receive career guidance and take part in artist-building activities. During their studies, they will be attending special master classes, obtaining high-level mentoring, recording music, and playing and touring for key performance opportunities.
