Alumni Updates: 
The School of Music wants to hear from you! Please drop us a line by regular mail or online on our Alumni Update Forum
We are interested in hearing from our alums about their favorite memories in the School of Music, the impact of a professor on their lives, or a perspective "from the field" about how your professional life was shaped by your OHIO education. Some quotes may be used in our web pages to give a personal element to site visitors interested in our programs. Please pass along images (new or old) which may be of interest to your classmates!
