Friends of Venice Music Project is a US 501c3 non-profit organization, dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Venice’s cultural heritage, particularly in relation to music and art. In our ambitious 2017 Season, we have presented over 50 concerts, primarily dedicated to the wonderful music of Venice’s great Baroque tradition, performed both by our resident orchestra, Venetia Antiqua, and guest ensembles from around the world.

We are planning an even more exciting 2018! Some of our plans include:
• “Hidden Treasures,” a new series featuring lost masterpieces rediscovered through our musical archaeology and given their premiere in modern times
• Our “Adopt a Musician” program
• Master Class in Baroque Opera for international participants
• A recording of “Canzoni da Battello,” traditional Venetian gondola songs from the 16th and 17th century
• Reinforcing our educational mission in Venice and abroad
• A stable ensemble for Venetia Antiqua, comprised of our “A Team”

None of this can be done without your help. No arts organization can survive on box office receipts or ever-dwindling government subsidies. We can offer a tax deduction to the full extent permitted by law to US and UK taxpayers through our 501c3 organization, Friends of Venice Music Project.

Our Tax Identification Number is 47-2306591.

Please help support our efforts and keep the music flowing.
