All proceeds from this event benefit the concerts and outreach of Jouyssance Early Music Ensemble, a program of the Foundation of the Neo-Renaissance (a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization).


As a small, community-based nonprofit, Jouyssance and the Foundation of the Neo-Renaissance depend on contributions from our community in order to fulfill our mission to present pre-1700 music from around the world in historically informed performances that inspire, entertain, and educate Southern California communities. 

Every dollar that we receive is essential to our organization.

$25 can fund music preparation for one singer for a concert.
$100 can fund venue rental for a dress rehearsal.
$250 can fund distribution of flyers and postcards so that we can introduce new audiences to early music.
$500 can fund a guest instrumentalist for a concert.
$1000 can fund staff time for developing our upcoming school-based educational outreach.
$2500 can fund a free outreach concert.
And much, much more!
