Ways to support and contribute:
At its heart, an orchestra is a collaboration. From musicians to the composers and to the director, dozens of people give their time and effort generously to create an outstanding concert and performance. Another very important collaborator is you. Each and every donation we receive from our patrons is a critical part of our creative capacity.

Cadenza invites you to become a donor, sponsor and/or member and support a 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts organization. Your financial support makes it possible for Cadenza to present classical music in a creative environment and to promote music education with a focus toward youth in our community.

The true worth of membership contributions far exceeds their dollar value. Contributions maintain the level of excellence of Cadenza and add to the network of relationships that are a vital part of the life of our community.

Become a Season, Concert Sponsor or member and partner with Cadenza in the presentation of a memorable musical event. All sponsors and members receive benefits and recognition for their contribution and all contributions are tax deductable.


Consider making a tax deductible donation by:
Making your checks payable to CCSCC with a note in the memo, "Cadenza"
-- Mail your checks to: PO BOX 8103 Santa Cruz CA 95061.

or by making an online donation via our fiscal sponsor on CADENZA's behalf:

We appreciate your support and your commitment to creating art for communities and community for artists.
