support la musica

As with all arts and cultural organizations, ticket sales do not begin to cover expenses. La Musica could not exist without generous donations from our patrons, local business community and charitable organizations. We greatly appreciate their support.

For more information about becoming a donor or sponsorship levels and benefits, please contact Joan Sussman at 704-293-4907.
