Dr. William J. Stegeman has really enjoyed his violin lessons at the Music School of Delaware. Really. Over the past year, Stegeman has made donations exceeding $1 million, including a loan payoff for a new wing at the school. At a press conference on Saturday, Stegeman unveiled the Music School’s new Johann Sebastian Bach Music Wing – a name he chose – and issued a challenge to other supporters with a matching gift pledge of $250,000. Dr. Stegeman also donated $100,000.00 to the Anthony G. Simmons Scholarship endowment at the Music School.

During the unveiling, the Concert Hall was packed with students as they rehearsed for a summer concert.

With Stegeman’s investments, the Music School of Delaware hopes to renovate the Concert Hall at their Wilmington location, expand the reach of their satellite locations, and meet the growing demand for financial aid scholarships. “We extend profound gratitude to Bill Stegeman,” said Music School President & CEO Kate Ransom. “Bill has consistently shown unprecedented commitment to the future of the arts in our region, and a great passion for the school and our educational programs.”
