Your gift supports the present and future of our modern “Villa Medicis”

Gifts at all levels have the potential to support a wide range of needs at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel, including maintenance or restoration of our original building, a national landmark, or the expansion of our modern facilities, outstanding special exhibitions touring Ysaÿe exhibition coming in 2019, and the development of an instruments fund to allow for purchase of highly valuable instruments for our young artists.

Among other projects, your contribution could:
Support a CD-recording for one of our young talents. Recording is a unique facet of the music industry, and this experience can be essential for our young artists on their path to development.

Finance an instrument purchase of a period instrument or modern string instrument – violin, viola or cello. To facilitate their growth at this high level, our outstanding artists must be able to play on the highest quality instruments available. You can make this possible, unlocking their potential, and even assign your name in recognition on the instrument.

Restore our historically listed building to bring back its original glory. Our historic original building is listed on a national register for preservation, and it is filled with beautiful “De Coene” furniture, “Perzel” lights, and silked walls that require upkeep and restoration. You can help us to preserve this heritage for future generations.

Strengthen our endowment fund to preserve the future of the Music Chapel. The endowment will ensure the longevity of our institution and our ability to carry forward the incredible legacy with which we are entrusted.

Create a named endowed chair in your honor, supporting a department and one of our Masters in residence. Endowing a named chair today will enable the continued engagement of performers at the highest levels to join the Music Chapel as Masters in residence, contributing to the unlocking of musical potential for generations.

Support our community projects to bring music and the arts to a broader audience. For many people, music is nearly absent from their lives. From their disadvantaged or isolated positions, they cannot experience its joy, and it is an important part of our mission to bring music to broad audiences to reach them.
