Music speaks what cannot be expressed. 

Your gift to Music Makers will have a major impact in the lives of many.

For education majors it can help increase employment opportunities and for all other students it can provide a rich cultural enhancement to their learning if they sing in a choir or play in a band. Music is the universal language and an important option for a well-rounded education. Your gift to Music Makers allows each student in band or choir to receive a scholarship to help with their tuition. Your annual Music Makers gift makes you a member and will provide invitations and frequent updates on music events and happenings with our music program and will be recognized in our annual member honor roll. You can make a gift via secure credit card transaction by clicking the "Donate Now" button above.

Mayville State University offers music participation opportunities in concert choir, swing choir, concert band and stage band for all students. The benefit of scholarships for music participants helps them as they work toward their academic goals. With the return of the music minor to MSU, interest in the music program is growing steadily. One of the primary reasons for its resurgence is the promise of scholarship money for each and every participant in the music program.

The love of music is an interest that reaches across majors and lasts for a lifetime. Our student musicians run the gamut of majors but are united by a common love of music. The goal of Music Makers is to share that gift of music at MSU and beyond.

Music Makers works to generate funds to provide scholarships. In addition, we hope that Music Makers can become a vital booster club for music at Mayville State.
