The Milhaud concerts are funded by the Class of 1945 Darius Milhaud Performance Endowment. Established in 1995 by the Class of 1945 at its 50th Reunion, the endowment has supported annual concerts featuring the music of Darius Milhaud. The Class of 1945 was among the first to graduate during Milhaud’s tenure at Mills. Their vision and generosity is a fitting tribute to his inspirational teaching and artistry. The Music Department is grateful to the Class of 1945 for ensuring that Milhaud’s music will continue to exert a strong influence at Mills in the years to come.
