We Need You Next Tuesday!
Take a moment to mark your calendars for EMA’s #GivingTuesday! Help the musicians you normally support when you attend their concerts by making a gift to the EMA Relief Fund on December 1 (or earlier - the fund is open now on the EMA website and on Facebook). A gift of $250 means we can give a much-needed mini grant to one musician.

Help us meet our #GivingTuesday goal to raise $10,000 for early musicians in need.

Save the Date to Give Next Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Applications for our next round of Relief Fund mini grants will open the next day, December 2, with funds released the very same day. #WeAreEarlyMusicGT
