The Peg Gorham Memorial Fund allows Fripp Island Friends of Music to offer young concert goers free admission to our performances.
As our 2016 season drew to a close, Fripp Island Friends of Music was profoundly saddened to lose long-serving Board member Peg Gorham. She was dedicated and tireless, devoting countless hours to our mission. She brought common sense and wit to the behind-the-scenes labors essential for successful performances, season after season. Peg’s passion was bringing music to children and children to music. She inspired our Arts in the Schools program and made sure it never faltered; She also strongly advocated our financial support to local young musicians.
To honor her memory, we established the Peg Gorham Memorial Fund to underwrite the cost of youth admissions. We hope that donations to the fund continue so that no student will ever pay to attend a Fripp Island Friends of Music concert.
There is no better tribute to Peg’s memory.
