Leadership Giving

Become a member of our
philanthropic society.

Sponsor a concert during the 2020-2021 season.

In a “normal” season, tickets only cover half of production costs. With the pivot to virtual and on-demand concerts, tickets stand to only cover about a ¼-1/3 of new technology, venue and artists costs. We hope you will consider a donation.

Music Worcester is now accepting sponsorship support for Lawrence Brownlee!

Lawrence Brownlee, tenor | Songs of My Youth | Friday, January 29, 2021 8pm | Livestream | Cost of program: $20,000

American-born tenor Lawrence Brownlee captivates audiences and critics around the world, and has been hailed as “an international star in the bel canto operatic repertory” (The New York Times), “one of the world’s leading bel canto stars” (The Guardian), and “one of the most in-demand opera singers in the world today” (NPR). Brownlee was named 2017 “Male Singer of the Year” by the International Opera Awards, and also serves as Artistic Advisor at Opera Philadelphia, helping the company to expand their repertoire, diversity efforts and community initiatives.
