You will see a message with a link to your cart, or you can find a link under the “shop” menu.
We’re all so very sad not to be able to be together at Early Music Week for yet another year. Due to the late cancellation, CDSS is able to pay staff the full honorarium, with no obligation to participate in online events.
But musicians and music teachers are all still struggling after more than a year of being mostly unable to teach or perform in person.
You can support our hard-working faculty directly by contributing on this page. These contributions are essentially a tip jar, and are not tax deductible.
Additionally, CDSS (Country Dance and Song Society) and Pinewoods Camp have also lost income this year with all events cancelled. While no donation is required to participate in any of these activities, we hope you will feel moved to contribute what you can to Pinewoods Camp or to the Country Dance and Song Society, which runs the Early Music Week program (both of these are nonprofits, and your donations will be tax deductible).
Thank you all for your support, and we all hope that we can be together making music in the woods next year!
-Emily O’Brien and Lisa Terry, Early Music Week Co-Bananas
