Dedication of "Fred Begun Percussion Suite"
The "Fred Begun Percussion Suite"
Through the generous support of Begun’s friends and colleagues, Mason has established the Fred Begun Percussion Scholarships and designated the percussion studio in the School of Music in his name. Begun has also donated his library – featuring timpani parts and scores, many autographed by renowned conductors and composers, all with his original markings – to Mason’s Fenwick Library.
For more information about the annual Percussion Ensemble concert or other School of Music performances and activities, please visit music.gmu.edu or call 703-993-1380.
