THANK YOU FOR MAKING VIENNA SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVAL A PRIORITY
The support of devoted opera patrons like you makes the vibrance, innovation, and diversity of the Vienna Summer Music Festival (VSMF) possible. The festival has allowed emerging classical singers to learn and perform in the City of Music, enabling their expansion into an capable operatic artists. Since the inception of VSMF, more than 1,000 musicians have attended the program.
By attending the program during the summer of 2023, I witnessed the magic of VSMF first-hand. I saw how the program’s participants came alive with the esteemed performances, coachings, and masterclass, to allow their career in classical music flourish, all while steeped in the dynamic classical cultural heritage of Vienna. Along with the staff of VSMF, we strongly felt the need to make this program available to all, regardless of economic status. Hence, the Scholarship Funds of VSMF was started!
Please consider making a gift to the SCHOLARSHIP FUND of VSMF.
Your generous donation will enable students that may not have access to this program otherwise have the opportunity to flourish and unlock their artistic potential with world-class productions through high-level training that is unique to VSMF. The next generation of singers will keep opera alive, and we see the critical importance of assuring that those in need of support to attend international programs receive the means to make it happen.

How your contribution works
OUR FISCAL SPONSOR
MEET OUR FISCAL SPONSOR
Artists for a Cause is a national nonprofit organization that helps visual and performing artists to use their talents for community improvement, stimulating culture, while addressing the critical needs of communities. Some programs help artists and charities to get the most out of their collaboration, while most produce results directly, by feeding the poor, healing the sick, or solving other problems through unique artistic solutions. Additionally, we never ask artist professionals in a struggling industry to donate or give away their livelihood. No program is merely about art for arts’ sake – Artists for a Cause is about the arts as a solution.
