For 25 years, Music for a Great Space has provided life-changing educational offerings and inspiring concerts by the world's top artists. These programs require the support of from individuals, donors, foundations, advertisers, concert attendees, and granting organizations.

We're all in this together. To musicians, the phrase "Tutti" means "everyone plays together" and is often used by an ensemble leader as a call to action when it's time for the whole group to start together. We're also using it as a call to action. It's time for everyone to do their part to ensure the success of our programs - Tutti!

Your contribution with your ticket order will help us reach our goal of $20,000 raised though individual donations, corporate sponsorships, and concert sponsorships during the 2016-2017 season.

The Ingram Memorial Endowment

The goal of the Ingram Memorial Fund is to underwrite one Music for a Great Space concert each season. To do this, we must raise enough capital to establish an endowment that will provide enough annual income to cover artist fees, space rental fees, and other concert-related expenses. Thanks to our generous audience, we have met our first goal of $50,000 completed by hundreds of donations from small to large.

Our new goal for the Ingram Memorial Fund is $75,000. Please help us raise the money we need to establish a lasting memorial to MGS co-founders Henry and Lucy Ingram by making your tax-deductible contribution today!
