Help Tesserae grow!

Tesserae strives to bring world-class early music performance to communities throughout the Los Angeles/Orange County area. It is our utmost desire to allow this music — music that we are deeply passionate about — to reach as many ears as possible, and we therefore try to keep our ticket prices as affordable as possible.

We are dedicated to expanding our school workshop program, and will continue to arrange post-performance play-alongs, events in which both amateur and professional period instrumentalists have a chance to play together.

To reach our goals and to work towards Tesserae’s continued expansion, we need your help. We are dependent on the generosity of our supporters to continue our mission, and any donation — large or small — goes a long way in helping us on our way.

It is easy to make a tax-deductible charitable donation. You can make a secure online donation though PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account to use this service.
