THE FUND FOR MUSIC INNOVATION

The Fund for Music Innovation is an opportunity for our community to partner with Kaufman Music Center in supporting Merkin Hall. Ticket prices cover only a fraction of the cost of bringing Merkin Hall’s dynamic presentations to tens of thousands of music and theater lovers each year. By giving to the Fund, you are investing directly in the future of live music and theater—both for our local community, and for our growing global audience.  

JOIN THE INNOVATORS CIRCLE

This 2020-21 season, we are continuing the Innovators Circle, our leadership giving society for Merkin Hall. During the COVID-19 pandemic, while the Hall is closed to the public and facing significant financial challenges, the Innovators Circle is more critical than ever. Funds raised via the Innovators Circle will enable us to continue bringing programs to audiences virtually, until we can be together again in person. Members will receive exclusive benefits listed below and will play a vital role in sustaining our performance programs this season.
