Friends of Greatbatch

Become a Friend of the Greatbatch School of Music

The Greatbatch School of Music at Houghton University facilities the growth of our students as excellent musicians and lifelong learners prepared to serve others with the gift of music through opportunities for collaborative music-making, including practice, study and performance that are designed to accelerate their God-given potential. Founded in 1883 and an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Music since 1946, Houghton University continues to build on its reputation for musical excellence, academic strength and Christian worldview.

Our student-musicians further benefit from the support of parents, alumni and friends. Founded by music alumni and the Dean of the Greatbatch School of Music, the Greatbatch School of Music is pleased to present the Friends of Greatbatch. The gifts made to Friends of Greatbatch benefit any Houghton student involved in Houghton’s many music programs and ensembles. Your donation is crucial to providing students with outstanding musical experiences by providing the additional resources necessary to bring in incredible masterclass instructors, world-class instruments and equipment, and additional programming as determined by the Dean of the School of Music in conjunction with the Provost and the Chief Financial Officer.

By joining Friends of Greatbatch, you are contributing to the mission of the Greatbatch School of Music and the overall mission of Houghton University. Your investment ensures we continue the long tradition at Houghton of musical excellence, academic strength and a deeply Christian worldview that equips our student-musicians for a lifetime of Kingdom work.
