A Thousand Voices in Honor of Joseph Flummerfelt
It is with great admiration and gratitude that we announce a new initiative, A Thousand Voices in Honor of Joseph Flummerfelt that will honor Dr. Flummerfelt, who left his lasting mark on Westminster and alumni for more than 30 years.
This spring, in conjunction with the Westminster Symphonic Choir’s performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 8, the “Symphony of a Thousand,” with The Philadelphia Orchestra in March 2016, we will seek 1,000 supporters and $100,000 for the Joseph Flummerfelt Endowed Choral Scholarship. With the outstanding generosity of alumni, parents, friends and artistic leaders from around the world, we look forward to honoring Dr. Flummerfelt while raising scholarship support – one of his greatest priorities.
Dr. Flummerfelt is honored and humbled that the Westminster community is pursuing this initiative.
"I am profoundly grateful and deeply honored that Dean Shaftel and his colleagues have conceived this creative approach to significantly increasing the support for Westminster students through the scholarship endowment that bears my name. Helping young musicians along their Westminster journey means so much to me. Recently I had the opportunity to be inside the beautifully renovated Playhouse and it is deeply touching that, going forward, the interior space will also bear my name.”
In recognition of reaching these milestones, Westminster will name the interior of the Robert L. Annis Playhouse, the Joseph Flummerfelt Performance Hall to ensure that generations to come will remember the artist who played such an integral role in the tapestry that is the Westminster community.
Additional information about this initiative will be provided in the months ahead.
