WHAT WE DO
Friends of Thayer continuously look for ways to improve and maintain the Thayer Mansion facility and its equipment so that it remains a beautiful and inspirational environment to learn and share art and music.  Fund raising events coupled with recitals and art exhibits are committed to support specific projects.    On the top of the list of fund-raising projects are scholarships for talented students who otherwise could not develop their talent.  In the past, Friends of Thayer has purchased or privided the beautiful, large oriental carpets in the rooms, all the comfortable folding chairs and seating furniture as well as the round and rectangular tables used for fund-raising banquets and special events.  Friends of Thayer has remodeled the entire third floor and is responsible for the exterior potted plants, signage and seasonal decorations.  Receptions after recitals and concerts are catered for with the help of Friends of Thayer.  Promotion and support of its instructors is done through website and Facebook page maintenance.  Add your support by viewing, liking and sharing our sites.Join, view, share and follow us on Facebook!
