Friends of Music

Friends of Music

Friends of Music (FOM) grew out of a need to provide a base of community and alumni support for the Department of Music at Methodist University. Over the last few years, FOM has been fortunate enough to help bring a wide variety of faculty-student concerts to campus, establish an endowed music scholarship, and present professional guest artist concerts and master classes. With your continued support, we can bring this excellence in music to everyone in our community.

Arts Council of Fayetteville logoThe Friends of Music Guest Artist Series is supported by the Arts Council in part by contributions from businesses and individuals, and through grants from the City of Fayetteville, Cumberland County, and the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources.
