Supporting Sarasa | Join Sarasa in making classical music accessible to wider audiences!
Our heartfelt thanks to all of our supporters!
The Kalliopeia Foundation has once again been our principal outreach supporter, along with the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Amelia Peabody Foundation, the Otto and Marianne Wolman Foundation, and of course the many generous donations from individuals such as yourself. We are grateful for every contribution, however great or small.
As one teacher wrote to us after our visit to her unit: “You brought such joy and peace to our program, we are forever grateful to you for this experience.” With that in mind, we hope we can count on you as a continued supporter and member of the Sarasa family.
We hear regularly from the press and others about the high quality of our music making and the wonderful atmosphere generated at our concerts. But we also need your help to spread the word about our concert series and to develop a larger audience. Why not tell your friends about our concerts and bring them along? So please contribute, and please spread the word about Sarasa.
You can help in many ways:
• Musical instrument donations
Most importantly, tell all your friends about Sarasa! We need more people just like you to help us continue our outreach programs. If you subscribe to our newsletter, forward it to friends who might be interested. Most people come to a Sarasa concert on the recommendation of a friend or family member. If you enjoy our music and support our goals, spread the word.
A monetary donation will aid Sarasa’s many programs. Any amount is appreciated. Sarasa uses this money to perform concerts, raise awareness, and offer instrument aid.
Please send check or money orders to Sarasa. Or, you can also donate using a credit card:
If you would like to donate a musical instrument, Sarasa will make sure it gets distrubuted to a child who needs it. Contact us if you have an instrument to donate. Attend one of our public concerts and remind yourself how music can uplift a lonely child or troubled adult.
