The Shepherd Society plays a significant role in maintaining the exceptionally high level of music performance and academic excellence that has been a hallmark of The Shepherd School of Music since its founding in 1974. Shepherd Society members provide essential scholarship support, allowing our students to pursue their studies without financial encumbrance. These gifts are integral to all we do and especially to the students’ development as musicians and eventually as artistic ambassadors in Houston and beyond.
Make a commitment to the talented young musicians at The Shepherd School of Music and watch Houston’s rising stars shine throughout the world.
