Evelyn Greenberg Music Endowment Fund

"As the proud recipient of an Honourary Doctorate from the University of Ottawa in 2004, I wanted in some way to give back to the university where I had spent 23 happy years teaching in the School of Music.

As I had accompanied students in every discipline, it seemed a perfect fit to lend my name to a fund that would maintain, renew and purchase instruments, thus playing a pivotal role in training professional musicians.

The Evelyn Greenberg Music Endowment came to fruition in 2006 and to date has been responsible for the acquisition of a Yamaha concert grand piano plus many other instruments vital to the School of Music. The many friends, colleagues and family members who have supported this ongoing fund deserve huge applause for their generosity. The Evelyn Greenberg Music Endowment is the gift that keeps on giving."

This magnificent nine foot grand piano has become the main piano in our concert hall, the Huguette-Labelle hall, in the Tabaret building.
Buffet-Crampon E-flat Clarinet

Photo coming soon.
Wind students are not generally expected to own their auxiliary instruments. A good student will own his or her own Bflat clarinet, but for much large ensemble repertoire, other clarinets are needed. This Buffet-Crampon E-flat clarinet allows the School of Music to not only attract exciting clarinet candidates, but also better see to the needs of current students.

As it is not always possible for students to own multiple instruments, the addition of these saxophones to the School of Music's collection allow the Wind Ensemble and the Orchestra to tackle repertoire that might otherwise not have been possible…and to do so with quality instruments!

This colossal, extended marimba opens up new vistas of repertoire for our percussionists; their gain also directly translates into all the small and large ensembles in which the percussionists perform.
