Support the Orchestra
The GVO operates on a lean budget — your generous contributions allow the orchestra to:
- Rent and purchase music
- Rent concert hall space
- Print concert programs and flyers
- Compensate soloists and guest musicians
- Record concert CDs
- Provide refreshments for concert receptions
Since ticket sales can never cover all of our expenses, it is the generosity of our audience, members and donors that enables us to bring our concerts to the New York cultural scene.
We are not a big organization and we have a modest budget, but if we are to continue bringing our audiences the kind of programming they have come to expect, we need your help. Whether you give $20, $40 or more, we can assure you that every dollar will go towards the direct expenses of producing our concerts.
Please help us uphold our tradition of offering high quality music at a very affordable ticket price.
Each musical element is essential to making our season possible and we invite you to become an integral part of GVO’s music making by making a contribution at one of the following levels:
- Rhythm: up to $100
- Harmony: $100–$249
- Melody: $250–$499
- Counterpoint: $500–$999
- Symphony: $1000–$4999
- Patron: $5000 and up

Musical Chairs Program
We are looking for annual sponsors to support each and every musical chair in the orchestra. The level of sponsorship depends on the chair in question:
- Music director’s podium: $1000
- Concertmaster’s chair: $500
- Principal chairs: $400
- All other chairs: $200
See the list of sponsored chairs on the current orchestra roster.
Chairs may be sponsored online via PayPal. For principal and other chairs, indicate the musician or chair you wish to sponsor in the “Add special instructions to the seller” area:
Alternatively, download, print and complete the mail-in form.
Amazon Smile Program
Another easy way to support the orchestra is through the Amazon Smile program. If you shop on Amazon all the time then you can now support the GVO while you shop—and it doesn’t cost you a dime!
All you have to do is the next time you want to shop, go to smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com. On the first visit you’ll be asked to search for a charity. Search for and select “Greenwich Village Orchestra”. Once you have selected us just shop, and 0.5% of all your purchases will go to the GVO. This doesn’t seem like much but if enough of our supporters join, these few dollars here and there will start to add up!
The Greenwich Village Orchestra is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization
and all donations are tax-deductible.
