The Bragg Women Music Opportunities Fund
The Bragg Women Music Opportunities Fund was established in 2017 by John Bragg, Mount Allison alumnus and past Chancellor, and his wife Judy, also a Mount Allison graduate. The fund honours five women in the Bragg family who made significant contributions to music education including: Zillah Bragg, Sylvia Bragg, Kathleen (Bragg) Sherman (Class of 1952), Carolyn (Bragg) Glennie (Class of 1958), and Lorraine (Bragg) Moore (Class of 1970).
The Bragg Fund provides funding in three main areas:
- The fund supports the visit of an Artist-in-Residence of national or international stature every year. The residency may include concerts, master classes, workshops, and mentoring of students.
- The fund supports student summer programs and touring opportunities, including summer programs in music.
- The fund supports music technology purchases, including advanced music-related software and hardware which will allow students to explore new ways of creating, recording, developing, and sharing their musical ideas.
“Music and music education have always played an important role in my family,” says John Bragg. “I am pleased to recognize Bragg Women in my family who have made lasting contributions to music education.”
