Colburn Society

The Colburn Society is designed to recognize your generous financial support of Colburn’s excellence in performing arts education.

This group offers you opportunities to meet like-minded performing arts supporters and cultural leaders. You will enjoy behind-the-scenes access to concerts and classes, interact with renowned guest artists, and connect with Colburn’s world-class faculty, leadership, and our extraordinary students.

You may choose from an array of Colburn Society events each semester, selecting topics that interest you most and fit your busy schedule. At higher giving levels, you may also invite guests to the events.
