Earmarked Program Gifts

Ticket sales barely cover the cost of concert productions and do not cover the cost of creations of new work, rehearsals, and marketing. To ensure access to the most under-resourced communities, music education programs are offered tuition-free to students and at virtually no cost to schools; out-of-school programs are also highly subsidized and offer scholarships.
