Thank you for attending the Alumni Reunion!
The alumni reunion was a joyous occasion that brought alumni, students, faculty, and staff together to celebrate the School’s 125th anniversary. The School would not be 125 years old without alumni, and we truly hope you enjoyed your time spent back on campus.
Please share your feedback by completing the survey below.
Reunion photos are now posted on Facebook and flickr. We would also love to see your photos! Please share them in the Yale School of Music Alumni Facebook group.
