Support Salem Band

There are substantial costs for our 250th Anniversary Celebration that are over and above normal operating expenses: commissioned works, guest artists, a visiting band, rental of performance and exhibition sites, additional music, etc. We are therefore seeking sponsors for this once-in-a-lifetime celebration. Support can be either by

  1. contributing undesignated funds or
  2. sponsoring specific events
