  • Description


    We are excited to introduce Cadenza: a benefit to support the School of Music, Saturday, March 4, 2023. This new event to replace Splendor will offer an evening to meet faculty and students, enjoy refreshments and libations at a pre-show reception, exclusive seating, and the excitement of live music from over 13 different ensembles in familiar (and some unfamiliar!) spaces. We are offering year-round opportunities to support the School of Music and are shifting to “Season Sponsors,” wherein you will be listed as a sponsor in the program the entire academic season!

    Performances by:

    Brass Band
    Chamber Singers
    Gator Band
    Jacare Brazil
    Jazz Band
    Music Business Ensemble
    Opera Theatre
    Symphony Orchestra
    Wind Symphony
    Plus 13 chamber ensembles and solo performances


    This new benefit is an important opportunity for supporters, alumni, and friends to come together to witness the profound talent of our students and support the UF School of Music. Funds raised offer crucial support to the students in the form of scholarships, equipment needs, masterclasses, and professional development and equip faculty with the necessary resources to be agile and respond to immediate needs. Cadenza is the perfect opportunity to enjoy top-notch music while connecting with others who believe in the power of philanthropy to uplift and amplify the next generation of artists.
