Friends of Music

Friends of Music LogoFRIENDS OF MUSIC is an advisory group dedicated to the continued development of the C-N music department. Membership with Friends of Music is easy. With any financial gift to the organization, you become a member for one year.

In the first 2 years of its existence, FoM has made considerable contributions to meet student and department needs. The biggest improvements have focused on providing new and updated classroom and program equipment.

Through FoM, your donations have helped to purchase new piano artist benches, new choral risers, music stands, mirrors for the practice rooms, and two new SmartboardsTM! The FoM board is active and eagerly planning new initiatives that will continue to add to the quality and distinctiveness of our C-N music department. Join us today and share in the good work we are doing! To join FoM, you may make a gift online following this link: Make Your Gift Online. Or, if you prefer, you may mail your gift in to the address listed below. Please include the printable membership form with your gift.

You may choose to make a one-time gift or, better yet, a monthly contribution which will automatically be deducted from your credit card. You won’t forget to send a check monthly but the music administration will be able to plan effectively knowing that your pledge will definitely be fulfilled. Anyone in the Advancement office can help with this process. Mrs. Vickie Butler is our FoM liaison and can be reached at 865-471-3222.
