1. Admission to approximately 20 free concerts each season
2. Reduced rates for renting the clubhouse for your own concerts, lectures, or other meetings.
3. A chance to work on collaborative projects with other arts organizations including Luna Nova Music, the Memphis Repertory Orchestra and more.
4. A concrete way to support young classical musicians as they begin their professional careers. Please consider joining us for the 2014-15 season.
