Three first-class Yamaha Artists in Education will perform a piano concert series at Drake in celebration of the University’s Keys to Excellence campaign — an initiative to replace 68 well-used campus pianos.
The Drake Fund pays for the immediate needs of the University — things like electric bills, library books, scholarships and faculty salaries. Pepper likens The Drake Fund to providing a family with the necessities of living.
Drake's mission is to provide an exceptional learning environment that prepares students for meaningful personal lives, professional accomplishments, and responsible global citizenship. The Drake experience is distinguished by collaborative learning among students, faculty, and staff and by the integration of the liberal arts and sciences with professional preparation.
