The Penn State School of Music Affiliate Program Group was founded with the purpose of providing a forum by which all School of Music alumni can grow professionally and personally and stay connected with each other and to the School.

The group works with the Director of the School of Music in remaining informed about the affairs of the School, encourages and supports educational and career opportunities for students in the field of music, and helps foster a sense of pride in the School of Music while enhancing its reputation and prestige.
