Performance Enrichment Fund
IU Auditorium is proud to invite world-class artists to our world-class venue. Unfortunately, our Steinway no longer meets concert performance standards. Steinways played regularly for performances are typically replaced after 20 years. Our beloved concert grand piano was purchased in 1968 making it 24 years overdue for a retirement.
By acquiring a new Steinway grand piano, IU Auditorium will continue to fulfill our mission to create engaging world-class arts and event experiences at IU, providing performers with the highest caliber instrument and providing a space where performers can share their artistry to create beautiful experiences for our students and community.
If you are interested in investing in IU Auditorium’s Performance Enrichment Fund, please contact IU Auditorium Director of Development, Kevin Gifford at (812) 855-0505 or at [email protected].
By giving to one of our endowment funds, or creating one of your very own, you’re making it possible for IU Auditorium to continue to enrich lives.
