Donate

The Cornish Music Series makes it possible for your donation to underwrite a series of concerts or a specific artist; you, in turn, make it possible for us to present world-class artists and emerging young talent in Seattle. It’s easier, and less expensive, than you might think. Individual gifts allow us to present the finest in jazz, chamber music, early music, and international fare on our series. They also help us to bring some of these same artists into our public schools and inspire the next generation of artists and audiences. Donate to help underwrite a concert and we’ll even arrange for you to meet the artists for dinner or drinks after the event. To find out more about how your donation can help us bring world class artists to Seattle call Iris Calpo 206-726-5064
