Support Friends of Music

The New Orleans Friends of Music’s concert series and educational programming would not be possible without generous support from you, our patrons, as well as a network of community partners. Every gift no matter what size makes a difference as our ticket sales cover only about half the cost of each concert. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by federal law and can be made by:

His wife Doris (1914-1995) was a great supporter of Friends of Music and a notable violinist and teacher.
