We make universities sing.

Work

Inspire passionately celebrates the emotional power of university music — and its unique ability to meaningfully impact fundraising, recruitment, and the culture of a university.

We proudly collaborate with leading universities to write new songs, to create libraries of their music assets, and to produce new music touchpoints and traditions.
