Give Now and Make an Impact

The Clarice Fund

Your gift enables us to sustain our commitment to innovation, creativity and curiosity in art-making and audience experience as we build the future of the arts today.

National Orchestral Institute

For over a generation, the National Orchestral Institute has nurtured the development of America’s finest young orchestral musicians. Members are selected from a rigorous cross-country audition tour and paired with an international cast of conductors and faculty mentors. Performances are held at The Clarice and in the community with a series of free and engaging concerts at schools, community centers and retirement villages. Your support helps us to build the future of the arts at Maryland and enrich the lives of many young musicians.

Performing Arts Library

The Michelle Smith Performing Arts Library is unique in that it transforms space, both virtual and physical, into dynamic collaborative learning environments for the study of music, theatre, and dance.

Performing Arts Scholarships

Scholarships ensure that the School of Music and School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies attract and retain top students. Through a strong liberal arts education and rigorous training in the performing arts, our students become the artists and scholars of the future.
