You’ve heard it before. “Without patrons like you, we could not exist.” But these are not empty words. They are the utter truth.  Ticket sales defray only about a third of the cost of most concerts. It is your financial generosity that makes it possible for us to bring these world-renowned musicians to Austin, Texas. Your contributions allow us to cover airfare for Wieland Kuijken, the award-winning gambist player from the Netherlands. Your money pays for scores and parts for the SCMS Baroque Festival. Your support underwrites the cost for this inexpensive—but absolutely crucial—website.  Thank you for your support of the St. Cecilia Music Series. Every dollar counts, and we work hard to be good stewards of your money. We know you have a choice in where and how you donate your money, and we are honored that you have chosen this organization as a beneficiary.  If you would like to provide additional support for SCMS, donations are gratefully accepted and are tax deductible. We accept donations by cash, check or credit card at the door, or if you prefer, you can click on the link below to donate online.  There are many ways to support the arts. If you have a skill or expertise that you would like to share with St. Cecilia, we welcome your involvement. Please contact James Brown, Artistic Director of St. Cecilia, at 512-345-8866 to discuss how you might best be involved.  On behalf of First Presbyterian Church of Austin and the St. Cecilia Music Series, we thank you again for supporting the performing arts in Austin through your attendance and financial gifts. We look forward to seeing you this season.
