We would like to invite you to become a Contemporaneous VISIONARY. By making a monthly contribution, you will help sustain the innovative work of Contemporaneous and will be given special access to our works-in-progress from initial conception through to completion.

One of the most exciting aspects of what we do as musicians is to witness first-hand the wonder of a new piece of music coming into being — from first idea, through months or years of hard work, culminating in a collective experience of sound and sight and motion in performance. Contemporaneous VISIONARIES will be instrumental in sustaining this work, and we will welcome you into the studio to share an up-close view of the miracle that is at the heart of what we do.

To become a Contemporaneous VISIONARY, simply pledge to a tax-deductible monthly contribution, and we will bring you with us to the cutting edge of creation. (One-time donations to Contemporaneous are also greatly appreciated.)

Because you see beyond the moment, beyond the daily grind, to a brighter future that you want to help us bring into being. Because you share our vision of vital, essential, life-affirming new music. Working together, what we envision today can be brought to life tomorrow.
