The Future of Pacific Serenades

Our break from the busy schedule of a normal concert season has not been idle time for Pacific Serenades.

Pacific Serenades still needs your donations!

To help with our plans going forward, and to help us complete the funding for our upcoming concert, please make a tax-deductible gift to Pacific Serenades. We are especially looking for donations to allow us to pay our talented musicians. A donation of $1,000 will sponsor one of the five performers, and for a $500 donation, we will pair you with another donor to provide sponsorship for a performer.
