The power of music, the strength of love

How can you help to power our production of Orfeo?


Opera requires a lot of resources, in front of the curtain, behind the scenes, and in the bank account!  Please consider a tax-deductible donation to support L’Orfeo.

As this exciting project comes to reality, we are gratified to have garnered significant grants and pledges of financial support already from The Lennox Foundation, The New York State Council on the Arts, The Gouvernet Arts Fund at the Community Foundation, and Dr. Dawn Lipson through the Rochester Area Community Foundation.  Our budget will provide fair living wages to more than 50 singers, instrumentalists, stage crew, and creative artists for up to 3 weeks, as well as pay for costumes, lighting, surtitles, venue, and other necessities of stage production.

Ticket sales cover less than 35% of the cost of putting on our productions. We rely on your generosity to make our unique events happen. All contributions are tax-deductible, no matter how large or small, and we are grateful for each one. There are so many ways you can help!

Sponsor an Artist! When you sponsor a singer, instrumentalist, or one of our directors, you will have the opportunity to meet your artist and participate in opera events.Call (585) 703-3990 or email for more information.
