support_holzberg.jpgWe reside in the fourth largest city in the United States where we are offered an incredible array of activities to enhance our quality of life. This includes world class Opera, Symphony, Ballet, Theatre, Sports, Museums, Medical Facilities, and great Universities.  However, we often do not take the time to really explore all of the possibilities that they might provide.  As an example, I ask you to consider the Moores School of Music, the gemstone of the College of the Arts at the University of Houston. Here are trained over 600 students (from around the United States and the world) in the Performing Arts.

We would like you to consider joining our Moores Society, dedicated supporters of the schools programming.  We are very proud of the recent individual success of our graduates, in particular Kenny Broberg’s (‘16) silver award at the 6/17 Van Cliburn competition, and the international recognition garnered by our Concert Chorale. In addition, unlike most other leading music schools that are Conservatories (focused solely on individual performing skills), we take great pride in helping to prepare the future teachers for the generations of musicians to come.  Membership benefits include invitations to special performances throughout the season.  In addition, tickets to events are relatively inexpensive, and concerts are given most Friday nights.  As a minimum, come to an event at our incredible Opera House and check out what is being offered.  We know that once you visit you will want to be here often.

Please consider joining our membership today by returning this form.  Our goal this year is to dramatically increase the size of our supporter base, enhance the value of the offering to our members, and increase the funds that we raise.  This in turn will allow us to increase the number of scholarships we can sponsor and also provide support for special programs and equipment that the University cannot fund.

We hope to hear back from you soon.  Please contact Brenda Gausch at or 713-743-9116 if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you at the Moores School of Music in the near future.
