Friends of Music took shape in 1985 when a group of music lovers along the southern Oregon and northern California coast decided to pool efforts and resources to bring high quality musical performances to the area. Over the years Friends of Music has grown and prospered. The artists coming to the Brookings venue have continued to provide concert audiences with superb performances.

Friends of Music not only presents concerts featuring internationally known and regionally acclaimed artists, the organization also sponsors mini-concerts for schools and has supported the Curry/Del Norte Orchestra Guild and the Curry/Del Norte Orchestra. With our recent association with the Partnership for Performing Arts, Friends of Music now expands our regional reach and ability to continue to bring beautiful live classical music to S. Oregon and N. California. 

Friends of Music could not exist without the efforts of many people. Among these are the members of the Board of Directors:

  • President: Mark Newhouse

  • Vice President: George Cady

  • Secretary: Stacy Bergstedt

  • Treasurer: Sonia Gray

  • Director: Norman Derby

  • Director: Mary Dillard
