You can DOUBLE your gift this December!

Throughout the month of December alums, friends and families will enjoy countless choral performances. It is a joyous time of year when we are able to enjoy some of the most beautiful music ever created. We invite you to support the gift of song by supporting the choral ensembles at the University of Minnesota Duluth.  Join the many that are already supporting the UMD Dr. Vernon Opheim Choral Scholarship, created by alums, family and friends of “Doc” Opheim following his passing in 2011.

Our goal is to raise $5,000.00 in the month of December so more talented choral students may continue to grow in their quest to make beautiful music. 

Double the impact of your gift to the UMD Dr. Vernon Opheim Choral Scholarship this Holiday Season!!  

Through the generosity of UMD alum, music educator, and active choral singer Ms. Virginia Ekstrom - Class of 1966 -, your gift in any amount will be MATCHED  - dollar for dollar – up to $2,500.00.  All gifts must be postmarked by December 31, 2018 to qualify…

100% of all gift funds will be used for scholarship awards. Your gift WILL make the difference!

Let Us Break Bread Together is the signature piece arranged by "Doc" Opheim and fondly remembered by all who studied with him. This choral masterpiece truly embodies the spirit of giving this holiday season.
