FAU's Department of Music is proud to announce that Wells Fargo is sponsoring the Music Department’s 2013/14 concert season with its matching gift program.

Florida Atlantic University is proud to announce
the Georgina Dieter Dennis Vocal Scholarship Award

Georgina Dieter Dennis was an award-winning opera singer whose career spanned several decades. She performed with the National Opera Association, Canada’s Civic Music Light Opera Company, with the USO during World War II, and was nationally broadcasted in a number of radio shows until she moved to Florida in the 1960’s. She established her foundation in order to provide financial assistance to singers who wished to advance in their music studies, and the Georgina Dieter Dennis Foundation selected Florida Atlantic University’s vocal program as a partner in this mission. The Department of Music is honored and grateful for this generous gift in support of our students.
