Conservatory Women's Committee
The purpose of the BW Conservatory Women's Committee is to support and promote the activities of the Conservatory of Music.
Each year the Committee gives cash awards to outstanding senior, junior and sophomore Conservatory students and to an outstanding preparatory department student. These awards total $2,800.00 a year. Over the years, the Committee has also pledged money to purchase needed items for the Conservatory.
The Committee is available for receptions after senior recitals of Conservatory students. Members also serve the receptions after Friday and Saturday Bach Festival, have a reception for seniors and their families on commencement day, plan other receptions as requested by the Conservatory, and act as ushers and hostesses whenever needed. Members bake countless dozens of cookies and prepare many other "goodies" throughout the year. They also hold a dinner/theatre event and sponsor the ever popular Alumni Jazz Concert.
Their board of directors meets each month from September thru June. Meetings for the general membership include the Fall coffee held in October at the Berea United Methodist Church on Seminary St., the mid-winter salad luncheon in January and the Spring luncheon/annual meeting in May.
