We are enormously grateful for donations of any amount – thank you in advance!
Donations from generous patrons make Capriccio’s extraordinary concerts and programs possible. Like most arts organizations, ticket sales account for only a small proportion of Capriccio’s operational budget. We rely on donations to cover artists’ travel, fees, visas and venue rentals. Capriccio keeps its administrative overheads very low thanks to our dedicated volunteer staff.
Your contribution will be recognized in our concert programs for 12 months following receipt. Recognition levels are: Bach Circle ($1,500+); Couperin Circle ($1,000-$1,499); Patron ($500-$999); Benefactor ($350-$499); Friend ($100-$349); and Supporter (to $99).
Capriccio is a registered non-profit 501(c)(3). Donations are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.

* VOLUNTEER TIME
Capriccio welcomes in-kind support and offers volunteers one complimentary seat for the concerts at which they assist. Volunteers join a warm group of music enthusiasts, each with a deep interest in music. Volunteers gain insight into the many aspects of concert planning and delivery and often get to spend a little time with the artists. We request that volunteers please commit to providing assistance for at least two concerts per Season. To volunteer please email Carolyn@CapriccioBaroque.org , being sure to let us know of special interests or skills you have.
ABOUT OUR CAMEO CONCERTS
We acknowledge, with enormous gratitude, the extraordinary generosity of artists who donate concerts, in whole or part, to Capriccio in support of its mission to increase interest in the harpsichord and the music written for it. These concerts are marked with our special “Cameo Performance” label.
