Thank you for your support of Mim 2018, our 11th Anniversary Season! 

In 2018, not only will we reach a record number of youth but we will feature world renowned soloist Cho-Liang Lin in both May, main-stage performances. Additionally, we will feature an incredibly gifted roster of musicians including pianist Anna Polonsky and Santa Cruz Symphony’s music director, Daniel Stewart! To mark the passing of Mim’s beloved mentor David Arben, Mim has commissioned a new solo violin work, “Hope”, by Polina Nazaykinskaya to be premiered in 2018.

We rely on your generosity as Mim receives no government support and ticket income pays for only 30% of Mim’s modest budget. With your support we hope to continue to provide an extraordinary experience for you and others in our community.

We are proud to announce that Music in May is a 501(c)(3) organization approved by the IRS. Mim’s tax ID # is 81-4148441.  Please make checks out to “Music in May”. Mail your checks to 221 Sunset Ave Santa Cruz, CA 95060.
