WAYS TO GIVE

Support Us

Toast to the Future of Symphonic Music! 

Help Mill Valley Philharmonic raise $10,000

to celebrate our 21st season! 

Mill Valley Philharmonic (MVP) is Marin’s premier, volunteer community orchestra. Our mission is to enrich the cultural life and strengthen the bonds of our community by providing quality orchestral programs to people of all ages in their own communities. Since concert halls were shuttered in 2020, we have created and presented 15 free virtual programs to our audience, including:

 

  • Everything you need to know about Mozart in 45 minutes

  • How Music Can Make You Better with Dr. Indre Viskontas

  • Saturday Salon: a live virtual recital of MVP musicians

  • Celebrating Black Composers

  • Leonard Bernstein and West Side Story

 

Check these programs out on our events page >

We have been delighted by the joys of interacting with our community in new ways and crafting these innovative programs. Thank you to those who participated for your support and your kindness!
