Greetings and Happy IU Day from your IU Jacobs School of Music!

IU Day is a 24-hour celebration of Indiana University and the friends, donors, and alumni like you who make it all possible. As a member of the Jacobs School family, we have pulled together a variety of ways for you to participate with us, in this global celebration.

And if 100 people make a gift on the Marching Hundred crowdfunding page today, an additional $2000 in challenge funds will be unlocked!


Hours of binge-worthy IU programming will be available all day long on the IU Day website. And make sure you tune in tonight to IUMusicLive! to watch a live stream of the IU Jacobs School of Music Philharmonic Orchestra performance at 8PM EST, featuring Stefan Lano, guest conductor and Claire Solomon, cello soloist.
