Ways to Support Us

Individual Giving

Our budget is met almost entirely by individual donors such as yourself. Consider donating today if you’d like to support our mission to inspire, enrich, and connect our community with classical music performed by local musicians. Each general donation helps us run our everyday costs. If you are interested in helping with something more specific, we are currently funding the following capital purchases:

  • Rehearsal facility upgrade – $5,000
  • Music Rental/Purchase – $1,200
  • Increased funding for our annual Young Artist Competition – $500
  • Library sorting rack – $1,200
  • Concert venue fees – $500

If you are interested in supporting a project or helping to expand our other ongoing efforts, we are working on:

  • Building our music library – Particularly quality editions of standard works and newer non-Public Domain works.
  • Commissioning New Works – Paying local composers to create new music in the community
  • Young Artist Competition – Our competition is still growing, and we are raising funds to support the event. Our efforts allow us to keep registration fees at a minimum. We can also increase the award to First Place, and expand the prize pool to 1st and 2nd runner-up.
