WAYS OF GIVING
Classical Music for All
For over 39 years, our Utah community has helped support the Beethoven Festival's mission of "Classical Music for All" by donating or providing cash, in-kind housing, instruments, rehearsal space, concert venues and volunteer time.
Your contribution can help ensure that the Festival continues to keep live classical music alive and available for all our residents year-round, presenting vibrant concerts in beautiful venues, and outreach programs.
The Festival Annual Fund
The Festival continues to bring together dynamic, exciting virtuoso solo artists who love performing chamber music together, creating programs to thrill longtime classical music fans and newcomers alike. Our favorite classical composers created their most expressive and exciting works for chamber groups that feature individual players on each part.
The all-classical Beethoven Festival performs throughout Utah averaging over 30 concerts and outreach events each year. Presented by the Park City Chamber Music Society, the Festival is one of Utah's only series dedicated entirely to performing all classical music. Your annual donation also helps the Festival plan ahead to schedule the finest artists, secure the venues and get the word out.
The number of concerts presented each year is a direct result of the amount of funding the Festival can raise. The Festival is efficient with low overhead so donations go directly towards presenting concerts.
By managing funding very efficiently, the Festival has been able to bring many of the finest classical artists of this era to Utah and to present multiple concert at a variety of venues each week and often repeating those programs in multiple towns and cities.
From free concerts in City Park to Salon Concerts in private homes to performances in senior assisted living facilities, the Festival artists perform the same programs of the highest artistic quality for every audience.

In-Kind Housing for Artists
Almost 50% of the Beethoven Festival budget is covered by in-kind gifts. Housing for the artists is the Festival's largest expense, next to artist' fees. If you have a space in Park City or very close, preferably with a separate entrance for extra safety during this Covid pandemic, where you can host one of the Festival's excellent performing artists, please contact us. The Festival can use other tax deductible gifts including donated cars, grand pianos, stringed instruments, recording and video equipment and Apple computers. Any of these will help offset expenses. These gifts make it possible for us to bring more artists to perform and present more concerts. Please contact Leslie Harlow, Festival Director, by email at MLBHarlow@gmail.com or text to 801-671-3549 to arrange to donate a much-needed gift.

• Help us unload concert supplies and equipment, help with setup for concerts and help with stage management.
• Help sell and take tickets.
• Provide transportation for the artists on occasion.
• Assist with the video cameras and help with taking photos for the Festival.
