Make live, early music easily accessible in the Houston community!

About the Project

Music for Tutti
Community Access Initiative
Tutti: An Italian musical term that means all voices together

Music for Tutti will expand our community’s access to high-quality live classical music by offering deeply discounted ($11) tickets to each concert in our 2017-2018 season!  Seats typically cost between $40-65.



About the project
We here at Ars Lyrica Houston strongly believe that live classical and early music improves quality of life.  Ars Lyrica performances allow an opportunity for audiences to reimagine a time & place distant to us and discover a wealth of Western musical heritage in an inclusive setting

Over the years, we have identified a need for easier accessibility to live classical music- The cost of attending a live performance is often prohibitive.  We seek to bridge this gap and deepen the ties between early music and the Houston community through our new “Music for Tutti” Community Accessibility Initiative.

Music for Tutti will expand our community’s access to high-quality live classical music by offering deeply discounted ($11) tickets to each concert in our 2017-2018 season.  Seats typically cost between $40-65.

Your donation will cover the difference for each ticket purchased at the $11 price. Our goal is to raise $5,000 which would provide 120 concert experiences for not only economically disadvantaged populations and schools, but those affected by Hurricane Harvey, college students, and young students of music who would not otherwise experience world-class live music performances. 



About the organization:
Ars Lyrica Houston presents early music as a vibrant contemporary experience, in programming that explores a wide range of Baroque and early Classical era music on period instruments. Founded in 1998, this Grammy-nominated non-profit organization is the early music ensemble-in-residence at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts.

Ars Lyrica recognizes the importance of exposing the community to classical music and the arts: We offer a variety of outreach programs in schools & in the community that connect contemporary audiences intellectually and physically with earlier cultures.   Our outreach mission is to make early music accessible and engaging for audiences who would otherwise seldom encounter live classical music.
