The Winter Wonderful Frost Holiday Dinner provides music lovers from all over the world with a meaningful giving opportunity to impact the lives of hundreds of young musicians who want to pursue a career in music at the most innovative and relevant music school in the country, yet need financial assistance to do so.
Winter Wonderful provides a double giving benefit by also positively impacting the lives of at-risk teens in our community that are mentored by Frost School of Music undergraduate and graduate students through the Shalala MusicReach program. Frost freshman music students “adopt” seventh grade music students throughout the community for four years each, providing private lessons and coaching their mentees at their Greater Miami Youth Orchestra orchestra rehearsals; the freshman in turn receive mentoring training from Arts for Learning so that community service is intertwined with their university experience. Frost graduate students also teach in the program, and share their organizational and leadership skills.
One gift, double impact. Now that’s meaningful giving!
When you purchase individual tickets, or a Diamond, Platinum, Gold or Patron Circle table, your donation through Winter Wonderful will increase our music scholarship fund, helping talented students reach their professional goals and positively impact the world through their musical excellence and mentorship of others.
This includes our wonderful vocalists, instrumentalists, composers and conductors, plus the world’s future music educators, music therapists, researchers, music engineers and music industry professionals. Last year’s gala helped us raise enough money to mentor 20 new teens four years through our Shalala MusicReach program. Our goal is to do the same this year!
Frost students are serious students. They undergo rigorous auditions before admittance. They graduate in the top tier of their high schools academically. They significantly elevate the academic profile of the University of Miami through their striving and dedication to their dream.
This year’s Winter Wonderful event will take place at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami, which is located at 255 Biscayne Boulevard Way. For directions, please click here.
THANK YOU for your generosity, from all of the students, faculty, administration and staff of the University of Miami Frost School of Music.
