Donate to Old First Concerts


Imagine a concert series that features the best local and international professional musicians. Imagine them playing repertoire carefully and intentionally chosen for its uniqueness, cultural importance and beauty. Imagine the concerts taking place in a historic building with nearly perfect acoustics. Imagine being enveloped by the positive energy and aura of thousands of previous great performances. Imagine a concert grand piano so meticulously maintained, that it has the ability to express any color imagined by the pianist. Imagine the tickets for these concerts selling for much less than you would pay to hear some of the same musicians at the SF Symphony, Ballet or Opera.

Old First Concerts is that concert series and you make it possible!

Next year, Old First Concerts celebrates its 50th year. As this important anniversary approaches, we ask that you consider giving $150 during our year-end fundraising campaign: $50 for the past 50 years of world premieres and great performances, $50 for supporting today’s emerging artists and building stronger audiences, and $50 for the next 50 years of helping shape the San Francisco classical music scene to include musicians and composers from every demographic. If $150 does not fit in your budget, please consider another amount – every donation helps Old First Concerts continue to thrive and develop as a leader in the San Francisco concert landscape.

Your partnership as a donor, concertgoer, performer, or volunteer at Old First Concerts makes us who we are: a community that believes in the power of music to illuminate, inspire and connect.
