Subscribers who donate receive an invitation to our “Artist Selection Reception” in November, where donors join RCA board members to judge candidates for the upcoming season. Donors are also invited to student outreach programs. It’s fun to be an impresario, please join us!

How do we use your donations?

Donations received last year subsidized artists’ fees and paid for student outreach, impacting hundreds of youngsters. In addition, we gifted funds to local music teachers so they could:

  • Purchase and refurbish band instruments
  • Purchase software upgrades; ‘Music and Movement’ instruments and props.
  • Purchase copyrighted sheet music for choral classes.
