Make a Difference

Set your name to music

Call it a harmonic convergence. The Beelzebubs Alumni Association joined current members of the a cappella group in making a $200,000 gift to name the main ticket booth at the Granoff Music Center, where from now on, seats will be sold from the Beelzebubs Box Office.

You, too, can support the performing arts at Tufts by naming a space at the new music center. A number of opportunities to do so remain, and they are noted in the list below. For information, please contact:
