Music Alliance Programs

General Fund

The General Fund of the Music Alliance supports programs, scholarships, renovation, and restoration of facilities and instruments, travel, and student activities not covered by the Music Department budgets. The Music Alliance has funded music education workshops and master classes by pianists Robert Taub and Mikhail Yanovitsky, cross-over trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, and early music specialist Andrew Manze.

Great Artists Series Fund

The Great Artists Series Fund has brought distinguished performing artists to Moravian College since 1997, including Marilyn Horne, Paul Plishka, Yo-Yo Ma, Frederica Von Stade, Denyce Graves, Samuel Ramey, and Wynton Marsalis.

Richard & Monica Schantz Music Scholarship Endowment Fund

The Richard & Monica Schantz Music Scholarship Endowment Fund, established in 2003 for the 75th birthday of professor emeritus and former Music Department chair Dick Schantz, adds an enduring and substantial benefit to the lives of Moravian College students. The fund celebrates the legacy of Monica and Dick Schantz, who helped establish the College's Bachelor of Music program, led the restoration of the 1748 Brethren's House and the building of Foy Concert Hall, fostered the undergraduate music program's accreditation by the National Association of Schools of Music, and co-founded the Music Alliance.

Piano Fund

The Piano Fund to date has financed the purchase of Steinway pianos as part of a program to make the Music Department an All-Steinway facility. This fund directly supports the curricular requirement of piano proficiency for all music majors and brings to the college the benefits of affiliation with the world’s foremost piano manufacturer.
