Listener Music Fund Campaign | Through March 31, 2015
Your gift to the Listener Music Fund will allow us to bring you great live music. The goal is to raise $20,000 in March, which will allow us to interrupt our Spring Fundraising Drive (April 9th-18th) to broadcast a live event: the Michigan Opera Theatre’s opening night of “The Merry Widow” on Saturday, April 11th. This is a great classical music experience – and together – we can share it with the entire community on WRCJ! Donate Today >
