After all the excitement of our 2019 Season,

we would be remiss if we did not remind you

how important the Year-End Giving Cycle is

for Venice Music Project.

A Venetian Affair

We need your help, especially after the recent flooding and resulting emergency situation in Venice.

As most of you know, during November, we saw the most severe flooding in Venice in over 50 years, which continues to be a crisis, even though the media is no longer focused on it.

In addition to the visible damage to the city, there was also lesser-covered but no less shocking damage to priceless, one-of-a-kind manuscripts in the library of the Conservatory of Venice.

Venice Music Project has committed to help as much as we can with funding the restoration of these manuscripts. Our work in musical archaeology has become a bit more urgent because of the floods.


We have accomplished so much this year.

Please consider helping us continue

and increase that in 2020.

We are now wrapping up our 2019 End-of-Year campaign.


To those of you who have already sent in your support, we send our wholehearted thanks and gratitude.

To those of you who have not yet managed to send yours in, or those of you who may wish to support us for the first time, there is still time to make it count toward a tax deduction in 2019 through Friends of Venice Music Project, our US 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
