To make great music, we need great friends.

To maintain and grow our thriving community of skillful, dedicated choristers and engaged, intellectually curious listeners — and to give electrifying performances of magnificent works in major venues — takes a serious investment of energy, time, imagination…and money. For over a century, we have managed our expenses carefully, generating revenue from ticket sales, engagement fees, grants, and dues, while relying on the heroic labors of our many volunteers to ensure that every dollar you contribute is thoughtfully spent on perpetuating and developing the art form we cherish.

As a donor, you help us extend the reach, relevance and quality of our work in each of these areas:

  • Sparkling performances

  • Visionary programming (including standard repertoire, revivals, and regional premieres)

  • Exciting, innovative commissions

  • Hall and role debut opportunities for emerging soloists on the cusp of important careers

  • Outreach and engagement with under-served audiences

Thank you for considering a donation to support our work. To discuss a specific gift, or for any other related questions, please contact us at or 646-638-2535. Donations can also be mailed to us at P.O. Box 421, FDR Station, New York, NY 10150.
