F Melius Christiansen Endowment Fund


In 1996, the American Choral Directors Association of Minnesota created the F. Melius Christiansen (FMC) Endowment Fund to foster Minnesota's reputation for choral excellence by awarding scholarships to undergraduate and graduate choral conducting students from private and public Minnesota colleges and universities. The Endowment Fund is named after F. Melius Christiansen, founder of the St. Olaf Choir, who believed his contribution to music was not one of instinctive genius, but instead an ethic of hard work used to achieve perfect intonation, seamless blend and crisp diction. Today, choral musicians in Minnesota pride themselves on a tradition of excellence built on the Christiansen foundation; this evolving tradition continues to inspire talented young people throughout Minnesota to pursue their ambitions in the field of choral music. The future of choral music — in classrooms, churches, synagogues and communities — rests squarely in the hands of these promising young and aspiring directors. Your gift to the F. Melius Christiansen Endowment Fund will assist with: -Providing active Minnesota choral conductors with professional development opportunities -Encouraging talented young musicians to pursue choral conducting as a career -Providing administrative support for ACDA of Minnesota
