It all begins here.
The Westminster Dean’s Circle provides an exclusive opportunity to participate in the development of the young people who will shape the arts in the 21st century.
Westminster choirs are heard every season with the world’s great orchestras, and on campus in Princeton they perform both classic and innovative opera and music theater, art song and chamber music, keyboard and choral masterpieces.
Over a million people sing with, study under, or listen to a Westminster graduate every week. Westminster alumni perform on major opera stages and on Broadway, and they teach in American and international universities. Decades later they speak of the power of collaborative music-making during their years at Westminster, and which the Westminster experience affords at a level far above any other conservatory in the world.
If you accept an invitation to become a member of the Dean’s Circle, you will enjoy priority seating for Westminster performances, invitations to gallery openings, previews and receptions with the performers and directors. Moreover, Westminster Dean’s Circle members are treated to intimate rehearsals, master classes, and recitals at Westminster campus venues. Their contributions provide fundamental support to Westminster’s performance programs and merit scholarships to some of the most promising students.
