Musicivic Musicast Fund (2022)

All donations made to Musicivic through the end of the year will be dedicated to our 2022 Musicast Program. It is our goal to produce a minimum of eight to ten new programs each quarter. Depending on funding raised, a portion of these programs will expanded to ensemble residencies including a live performance opportunity. A Budget of $32,000 per quarter ($128,000 per year) allows us to fund ten Musicasts, including four residencies each quarter. The majority of these funds directly support our musicians. We hope you will consider a generous end of year donation to support this fund.
