MAKE A CONTRIBUTION!

Music is what matters most at Orfeo Music Festival. As part of strong belief in our mission to cultivate and spread the great musical tradition by way of mentoring in a community of artistic integrity and making the fruits of our labor accessible to everyone, all events and concerts are free to public. Our talented student participants often give up their summer employment to attend and are in need of considerable scholarship support. One can find more than 60 events on Orfeo's calendar every year, nearly 200 participants, orchestras, choir, opera scenes, chamber groups, solo performances, master classes and numerous concerts.

Such remarkable event is supported every year by generosity of friends of Orfeo Festival Society and Special Gifts in memory or in honor of loved ones. Your tax-deductible contribution to the Orfeo Music Festival will help educate and present in numerous public concerts many of the next generation's finest musicians. If you have not yet visited, we encourage you to come to Vipiteno, situated at the heart of the Italian Alps, and experience the inspired and joyous music making at our festival. Your life will be enriched in a significant new way, your memories of Orfeo will always warm your heart. We invite you to join the circle of friends who make this outstanding event possible. Your contribution in any amount makes a difference today and tomorrow.

Orfeo Festival is a public charity exempt from income, gift, and estate taxes under the 501(c)(3) section of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
