It is no secret that the pandemic has taken a terrible toll on musicians and performing arts organizations. After such a lengthy time without live audiences, many of them will never return. We are grateful to report that due to ongoing support from our audience and friends as well as stringent budgeting, we find ourselves in a favorable financial position. But we are not out of the woods yet! Upgrades to our website and technology that allows us to stream concerts has proved expensive. There is so much we want to do, and we need your help now more than ever.
La Fiocco can only provide innovative programming and support both highly experienced musicians as well as emerging artists through the generosity of individual donors. We receive very little corporate support and only small government grants that account for less than 20 percent of our revenue. Ticket sales cover about 35 percent, so the remainder of our costs must be met through community support.
La Fiocco’s total annual revenue is less than 10 percent of America’s leading Baroque orchestras, yet we are able to provide programming on a par with many of them. We owe this to the dedication of our audience, Board, musicians, and our deep commitment to fiscal responsibility.
GIFTS IN MEMORY
A wonderful way to honor the memory of a beloved family member or friend is to make a gift in their name and have them honored in our program.
A gift of $750 endows a musician for one program. A gift of $2,000 endows a musician for an entire season.

VOLUNTEER SOME TIME OR A SERVICE
Another way to help is to volunteer some time or a service. We can use help with getting the word out – from encouraging friends in the areas where we perform to attend our concerts, hanging posters, ushering at events, or even hosting a musician for 4 to 5 nights. Or you can volunteer a few hours of special services like accounting services, photography, or graphic design. We so greatly appreciate it!
