Second Annual Giving Day a Great Success

The Beloit College community is generous and showed its heart and soul during its second annual Giving Day on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. In just 24 hours, the college raised over $65,000 from more than 450 supporters.

Not only did the gifts far surpass the original goal of $25,000, the event also raised $25,000 more than last year. Beloit is touched by the fantastic response received from supporters and is grateful to be backed by such a strong foundation of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. These gifts help make ‪#‎BeloitPossible for the next generation of Turtles, Bucs, and Beloiters.

The unconditional support, enthusiastically offered by our alumni, parents, and friends is a tribute to the character of our community, and the value that we all collectively recognize in the mission we seek to advance. We at Beloit are privileged to have a community so willing to invest in the future of our great institution, and our students. For this, we are grateful,” said Mark Wold’95, Senior Director of Alumni & Parent Relations and Annual Support.

Thank you to all who supported Beloit College’s second annual Giving Day. As College President Scott Bierman often says, it’s “turtles all the way down.”

Bring on the baroque: Wisc. Baroque ensemble opens season

October 8, 2010 at 11:56 am


The Wisconsin Baroque Ensemble opens its 2010-2011 season in Eaton Chapel at 7:30 p.m. tonight (Fri., Oct. 8). Admission is free, but a voluntary contribution is appreciated.

As the harpsichordist for the group, Max Yount is hob-nobbing with superb artists whom you have heard and come to love. Rebecca Meier-Rao, baroque flute, will be a duet partner with the harpsichord in a lovely early Classic sonata by Franz Benda; and she will offer a solo fantasie by Telemann. The vocal artists, Mimmi Fulmer and Consuelo Sanudo, are singing highly expressive madrigals of Claudio Monteverdi and  Luzzasco Luzzaschi, with rich accompaniment of violas da gamba, cello and harpsichord—all in rich flawless Italian.  

Emerging from accompanying roles, the instrumentalists will flaunt some solos: Eric Miller two gamba solos by Carl Friedrich Abel; Anton TenWolde will perform a majestic cello sonata by Francesco Geminiani, and Max Yount a precocious prelude and fugue for harpsichord by J. S. Bach.
