Friends of Music Fund

Support the CFA School of Music on BU Giving Day

Your gift to the School of Music is an investment in the artists who will shape the sounds of the 21st century. It supports advanced training programs, scholarships, performances, and master classes with legendary artists.

Thanks to our 2021 Giving Day sponsor Russell Hornsby (CFA’96) every gift to CFA will generate bonus funds on BU Giving Day. From off-Broadway productions to starring opposite Denzel Washington, Russell has enjoyed an enviable and varied acting career. He attributes much of his success to Shakespearian training at CFA, where (then new hire) Professor Judy Braha saw his potential and encouraged Russell to excel in his craft. From the lead in Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector to movies like The Hate U Give and Fences, as well as popular TV series such as NBC’s Grimm, ESPN’s Playmakers, and ABC’s Gideon’s Crossing, Russell brings his CFA training into focus.

Join Russell in celebrating CFA by making your gift on BU Giving Day!
