Help fund performances

Music makes a difference. And we support writing music. In many ways.

The project provides direct support for collaborative creation of music by emerging composers, including its staging, filming, video, live performance and recording. Admission to public events funded by the project is always free.

Funds you give here are used directly to pay musicians, dancers, choreographers, composers, venue, and the stage and tech experts for the public performances. The program is sponsored and administered by skyHi Digital, which fills the gap between what we raise and what we spend on these performances.
