Young Music Alumni
Music Department Chairman, Dr. Jason Oby, and a group of alumni from the Department of Music gathered at the home of retired professor and TSU alumni, Bernadine Oliphint to discuss the formation of a motivated sub-group of the larger music alumni association. The "Young Music Alumni" has set out a stated purpose of advocacy, fundraising, and material support for the various needs of the department of music and its current students. The existing music alumni infrastructure is largely focused on scholarships. The new group will concurrently become active in the existing organization. Immediate plans include a fund raising concert performed by the "Young Alums" which includes successful professional performing musicians in classical, pop, r&b, and jazz genres.
