1. Friends & Patrons

The Friends and Patrons of the Melharmony Foundation (MF) play a vital role in melharmonic collaborations between professional orchestras, ensembles and composers.  They also play an important role in supporting and/or supplementing initiatives of the Melharmony Foundation such as the North American Melharmonic Honors Orchestra (NAMHO).  Friends will be able to pay with American Express, Visa, Master Card, Discover, PayPal balance or Bank Transfers. 

 

In return for their contribution, our Friends and Patrons will be offered an exclusive set of benefits that are not normally made available to the general public, such as two weeks’ priority booking; access to open Rehearsals at our residencies in schools; and invitations to luncheons, receptions, meet-and-greet the artistes, and other special events.

 

Suggested contribution for Friends of the Foundation is $ 25 per month or $ 250 per year and for Patrons is $100 per month $1000 per year.

 

2. Composer Endowment

Composer Endowment enables you to support the melharmonic arrangements and performance of the repertoire of your favourite composers by various symphonies and other orchestras. Be it Tyagaraja, Dikshitar, Oottukkadu Venkata Kavi, Purandara Dasa or Annamacharya or Mozart, Bach, Beethoven or other masters, MF will ensure that your name and personal support are channeled to propagating the works of that Composer. Composer Endowment is therefore a hugely satisfying and personal way to contribute to the Melharmony Foundation’s music-making. Composer endowers are credited in all concert programs, as well as on the melharmony website, alongside the name of their favorite composer. Contact us for more details on payment options and plans.

5. Adopt a school

The Melharmony School Program has received acclaim from the orchestra players, conductors as well as the media.  The Foundation aims to take this to thousands of school districts in North America and seeks your support to make it happen.  If you have a school in which you would like to see Melharmony being presented you could sponsor or co-sponsor the program cost which includes brief interactive lectures demos, new repertoire for the orchestra, rehearsals and performances.
