Support Ars Nova Workshop

All donations to Ars Nova Workshop are tax-deductible!

It takes a lot to do what we do, and your dollars support everything that goes into doing it: paying artists for their performances and covering their travel, lodging, and meals; maintaining instruments, amplifiers, and recording equipment; and supporting the people who work long hours to bring you this gift, of life-changing music. Any contribution, large or small, helps ensure that we can keep bringing you the finest in jazz and contemporary music.

Ticket revenue only covers about 20% of what it takes for us to bring you the most amazing musical artists of our time. And we are just beginning to offer so much more: commissions of new music, recordings of groundbreaking compositions, exhibitions that illustrate the multi-faceted lives of these musical masters, and a few surprises to come (soon, we hope)!

We hope that you will enable us to continue raising the profile of jazz and contemporary music and bringing it to more and more people. As we have a 501(c)(3) designation from the IRS, all donations to us are tax-deductible.
