Widely recognized as one of the preeminent performing arts schools in the nation, the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance has produced performing arts leaders from all disciplines since its founding in 1880. We are renowned for our rich and comprehensive program of instruction, performance, and pedagogy. To remain in that preeminent position, we need to recruit and retain the next student Leaders & Best; to support them with state-of-the-art facilities, equipment, and technology; to provide opportunities to learn from acclaimed guest artists and scholars; to empower them with career and entrepreneurial skills; and to supplement their learning with influential and often life-changing off campus opportunities for performance and study. Alumni and patrons, who both share our message and underwrite it, are a critical part of our mission. We invite you to be a Victor for Michigan by joining us for this exciting new era of growth for the School of Music, Theatre & Dance.
