Support The Thirteen

The Thirteen is committed to a diverse and multi-generational audience. Yet this does not always translate to financial security. The fact is, The Thirteen depends on your donation for its existence. Only 15% of our operating budget comes from ticket sales. 

We ask that if you appreciate our artistry you make a commitment to The Thirteen and give as you are able. But no matter how much you give,– whether $5 or $5,000 – we hope you will give something.  It means a great deal to us to expand our musical family. Join us in making music.
