Encore Circle

The Encore Circle honors donors whose planned legacy includes long-term future support for the performing arts. By making a planned gift, you ensure that Colburn can continue preparing young artists for careers in which they will succeed and thrive. A legacy gift is evidence of both a donor’s belief in the School’s mission and commitment to access in excellence. There are many ways to include Colburn in your estate plans; the simplest being to include a bequest for a percentage of your estate or a fixed amount to the School in your will.

Benefits of membership in the Encore Circle include invitations to events designed especially for you, where you will meet like-minded donors, socialize with peers, meet students and faculty, as well as hear about the difference you are making in the lives of Colburn students; personalized invitations to concerts, recitals, and other events; personalized concierge services for performance tickets and other campus experiences; acknowledgement in select Colburn published materials; and benefits of Colburn’s annual giving program, the Colburn Society.
