ATU Friends of Music Program

National conferences. Regional conferences. Invitations to perform at world-famous venues. Saturday nights at Thone Stadium at Buerkle Field. Sunday afternoons at Witherspoon Auditorium.

Arkansas Tech University band and choir students regularly represent our institution with distinction across the United States and at home.

Now, ATU alumni and friends have a new way to show their support.

The ATU Friends of Music program is a fund that will provide much-needed resources to these growing programs and create opportunities for students to develop their skills and continue to excel. Friends of Music donors will support scholarships, facility and equipment upgrades, travel costs and other initiatives for the benefit of ATU music students.

“The passion of our music supporters is well known, and we need your help to carry on our music program’s tradition of greatness,” wrote Dr. Daniel A. Belongia, director of bands, and Dr. Christopher Harris, director of choirs, in a joint statement. “Become a Friend of Music member and make an immediate impact on ATU music students. Together, we can help launch Arkansas Tech music programs to new heights.”
