50th Anniversary

A Musical Homecoming  50th Logo

In 2014, the Guild celebrated its 50th Anniversary with a weekend of events: Presidents’ Reception, Annual Luncheon and Meeting, and a Concert featuring past Scholarship winners. The 50th Anniversary Concert on June 7, 2014 at Christ United Methodist Church was offered as a gift to the community during its 50th Year. Musicians from coast to coast returned to perform. Now professionals in a variety of fields, the former Guild scholarship winners say the Guild encouraged them to enjoy music for life.

In conjunction with the 50th Anniversary celebration, the Rochester Music Guild set a goal to raise $50,000 to add to the Scholarship Endowment Funds in order to ensure these funds are self-sustaining. Thanks to the many generous donors, we exceeded our goal with over $60,000 in donations!

For more information about the 50th Anniversary Celebrations, please look at the Annual Meeting Report, the Presidents’ Reception, the 50th Recital program, and the Scholarship Alumni Bio Book.
