We bid farewell to another academic year in this issue of Quarter Notes, our last until school reconvenes in autumn. With Commencement 2016 only recently behind us, we extend congratulations to all 54 graduates in the Class of 2016, the first class to walk across the Brechemin stage for celebratory handshakes and applause at our annual Grand Finale celebration. Congratulations to the headliners mentioned in this issue and to the students who show up every day, books and musical instruments in hand, ready to get to work. Your talent, your dedication, and your determination do not go unnoticed and will take you far in your lives in music. In this issue we celebrate our students. Bows up! Now take a bow!
Your gifts to our scholarship funds provide our students educational and performance opportunities that would otherwise not be possible, and we are grateful for your generosity. To make a gift in support of UW music students, please view a list of priority funds here. Thank you!
