Donate to First Muse

First Muse Chamber Music is supported only in part by ticket sales. We have chosen to keep our ticket prices affordable ($15 for an adult, compared to $20 - $35 other local chamber music series), and have also chosen to donate 25% of our ticket revenue to various Social Justice Task Forces at the First Unitarian Church of Rochester in support of their ongoing participation in the community life of Rochester NY.

Beginning with the initial and generous gift in 2007 from the family of Caroline and Richard Wilson, the concert series continues to rely on the donations of eager music-lovers in the Rochester area and beyond. These gifts range from a few dollars (easily added to the ticket price) to annual gifts of $50 to $500. In addition, some donors have chosen to underwrite a favorite performer or to commission a new composition for the series. If you are interested being part of ensuring First Muse's thriving future, please contact Melissa Matson ( You can also donate by using our Ticket Request Form.

Donations are made to the First Unitarian Church of Rochester (and are tax-deductible), earmarked for First Muse Chamber Music. You may send a check (payable to First Unitarian Church) to:
