Lamp post image for gala eventHistory
This year will mark the 22nd anniversary of the USM School of Music’s Annual Scholarship Gala. A signature event, this evening highlights the formidable talent of USM School of Music students, entertains hundreds of guests and most importantly, raises more than $50,000 net for USM music scholarships.

Theme                                                           
Each year’s gala features a “theme” that is reflected in the music, menu and decor.  You'll find "Come A-Caroling" a most special way to celebrate the 22nd anniversary of the USM School of Music’s production and presentation of this beautiful and delicious evening. 

In the spirit on the Charles Dickens holiday classic, we'll visit the Past, Present and Future of the USM School of Music with music and merriment a-plenty.  (No Scrooges allowed!)

This gala has grown to become one of the area’s most popular non-profit holiday fundraising celebrations.

Reservation Levels
Our reservation prices have remained at the same levels for the past eight years.  A patron reservation is $90/person, with $40 dedictible. This reservation includes hors d'oeuvres, a holiday banquet with wine, champagne and chocolates, coffee and dessert...
and, music throughout the evening! A beautiful prelude to your holiday season.

We will accept reservations through the week of December 3, space permitting.

Patrons who attend at all levels enjoy...
hors d’oeuvres during cocktails with a backdrop of holiday music performed by USM student music ensembles; reserved seating at a festive dinner banquet with complimentary dinner wine and tableside serenading; a welcoming champagne toast in Hannaford Hall by University President, Theo Kalikow; a spectacular live auction; and a grand centerpiece concert performed by talented USM School of Music students. The evening concludes with dessert and coffee in the grand lobby accompanied by more live seasonal music.

Importance of raising scholarship funds for the USM School of Music
Over the past twenty-two years, this scholarship event has raised more than one-half million dollars for scholarships, all of which has been awarded to talented, passionate and worthy USM music majors who in turn enrich our lives and the lives of younger generations.

A sumptuous menu and outstanding performance in the good company of music lovers, sets the tone for a memorable evening for all!
