When a community rallies together, amazing things happen. Since our first season in 2016, hundreds of community members banded together to grow Emerald City Music from an ambitious idea into a national leader in classical music experiences. And even better, accomplishing this incredible vision while remaining financially viable.

Our team continues to dream up new ideas, and its only through your support that these ideas come to reality, from the unique elements of the ECM concert experience to the many incredible and dynamic concerts dreamed up by Artistic Director Kristin Lee.

You can support this movement by making a one-time or monthly contribution, and any amount – from $10 to $10,000 – truly makes it possible for thousands more people to rediscover how awesome classical music is.

Donate Now


Do you remember the first time you attended a live concert? You take your seat, the lights dim, and you wait in anticipation as the artists take the stage to transport you away. Your support of Emerald City Music allows others to experience that for the very first time.

  • A donation of $5,000 sponsors an artist's entire visit to Seattle and Olympia, including airfare, accommodations, and performance fees.

  • A donation of $1,500 sponsors the rental of a concert hall for one evening.

  • A donation of $500 provides roundtrip airfare for an artist (Fun fact: did you know that cellists always buy a seat for their instruments?)

  • A donation of $100 helps Emerald City Music build more new classical music lovers through outreach and social media events.
