NYCC 2020-2021 Fund Raising & Giving Campaign

Monday, November 30, 2020 12:15 PM

During these trying times, creating new music has been difficult, to say the least. With nearly every live concert opportunity canceled and musicians withdrawn to their living rooms, the business of music-making has suffered greatly. Yet in the face of such difficulties, we must persist. Composers are still writing new music and musicians are still practicing. The loss of in-person rehearsals and live events has cost the world of art music dearly. Our composers and musicians and have been forced to adapt in the era of COVID just like everybody else, but not without a huge impact upon their livelihood and artistic exposure. That's why, now more than ever, it is important for people like you to help support artists who have been put out of work due to the COVID pandemic.

Through new collaborative efforts, New York Composers Circle has established opportunities for our composers beyond our own borders, including in Europe, Russia, and Asia, and for other composers from around the world to interact with New York audiences. Our composers are now concentrating their efforts on creating brand new music for solo performers and smaller ensembles to fit the current limitations, and we are setting up multi-camera, internet-broadcast concerts to bring our audiences an engaging new music experience. However, it takes money to make all of these things happen and keep our cause going. 

Will you join us and invest in the future of new concert music and help us support the musicians who have been impacted by this pandemic by making a tax-deductible gift to the New York Composers Circle before 2020 ends?

Whether you donate $5 or $5,000, your gift will ensure that New York Composers Circle will survive. You can help us continue to present the very best new music to New York audiences and beyond through live and pre-recorded events that are broadcast via the internet, and live-in-person concerts too just as soon as it is feasible for us to do so. Every little bit helps.
