Spreading Joy and Community Through Music

With your support, the International Music Foundation continues to fulfill our mission, even in the face of a pandemic. This summer, we reinvented our Rush Hour Concerts as virtual weekly performances that were streamed each Tuesday, July through September. We are together again (virtually) on Wednesdays at the Chicago Cultural Center, enjoying the Dame Myra Hess Concerts. While the pandemic has changed the daily routines for most of us, it has not changed our collective experience of enjoying extraordinary classical music. Without you, our audience, and our artists, there would not be any concerts. During this time, more than ever, we yearn for a connection to each other and to the world beyond our individual homes. Classical performances are a way to spread joy, as well as provide a united, communal experience.

Throughout 2020, your generous donations have been more important than ever, as we remain committed to employing our extraordinary and dedicated artists — even as many arts organizations have been forced to close. Please consider making a gift on Giving Tuesday so the International Music foundation can continue to bring you free virtual concerts during the pandemic, as well as live performances once we are safely able to do so. By supporting our talented musicians, the IMF — with your help — can ensure a future for the classical music community.

Please help us reach our goal of raising $5,000 today in support of these extraordinary artists.
