Dear Music and Drama Alumni and Friends:

    Every university is more than its buildings and its campus—it is a living entity, and at Prairie View A&M University, the Department of Music and Theatre is its very heart.  The Marching Storm, the Concert Chorale, the Symphonic Band, the Gilpin Players—we are a diverse family of dedicated, encouraging professors, and young students poised to begin their professional careers.  Our common ground with each other, and with you, is our great enthusiasm and deep love for music and the theatre. 

    Our faculty consists of professionals who are engaged with major arts organization in many parts of the State of Texas.  Our graduates are also professionals—band and choir directors, jazz performers, actors in musical theatre, film, and television, not only here in Texas, but across the country as well.

    Here at Prairie View, we are striving daily to raise the standard, but we need your help.  We need funds to improve and develop our program: for the purchase of musical instruments, for scholarships, for master classes with guest artists, for theater lights, seats, and technical equipment, for technology in the classrooms, for the purchase of CD’s, DVD’s, and music scores for our music library, for student participation in regional and national events.  Presently, the university’s budget does not fully fund all of these important needs.

    That is why we are reaching out to you, our larger family, for help. We hope you will stand with us and support us in our effort to provide the best quality education for our students. Your generosity is critical—your gifts will make it possible for us to provide a better education for Prairie View students and to make them competitive in today’s professional world.  We are so very grateful for any contribution you can make.  Your gift is tax deductible, and as a thank-you, we will send you a CD of recent student performances, which we hope you will enjoy.  Please know that donations of any size are welcome.

    We hope you will visit us on campus—let’s get reacquainted! Come to our concerts, our theatre productions, or just sit in on a band or choir rehearsal. Visit our website at (Click on Colleges & Schools) for our calendar of events. Take a first hand look at the future in progress.  And with your kind help, the future of these young Prairie View students will beckon ever better and brighter.
