Music Affiliate Program Group

Next Up -- Please Take The Survey!

Conversations have begun about a potential all-alumni reunion in 2019 after the new recital hall is complete. Board president Carol Poblete has this to say: "As we look to the future and the opening of this beautiful new space, I am proud to announce that the School of Music APG is working with School of Music faculty to put together an alumni reunion to be held in the Summer of 2019. We hope to plan a reunion weekend that will include ensemble experiences as well as time to socialize and reconnect with faculty and each other. To get a clearer picture of interest and possible instrumentation, we are asking that you take a moment to fill out a brief survey to help us plan a successful event. You can find the survey here.

The Penn State School of Music Affiliate Program Group was founded with the purpose of providing a forum by which alumni can continue to grow professionally and personally and stay connected with each other and to the School. The group works with the Director of the School of Music in remaining informed about the affairs of the School, encourages and supports educational and career opportunities for students in the field of music, and helps foster a sense of pride in the School of Music while enhancing its reputation and prestige.


The group is always looking for alumni who are interested in giving back to the School of Music by serving as a board member on the alumni group. Meetings can be held by teleconference and at the collective convenience of the Board and the Director of the School.  Carol Poblete currently represents the group on the Arts and Architecture Alumni Society Board. If you are interested in the possibility of serving on the alumni group board, please contact Carol or Joyce Hoffman in the A&A Alumni Office.
