What do New York, Boston, San Francisco, Houston, Milwaukee, and Ann Arbor have in common? They are among the few cities in the US that have an organization dedicated exclusively to early classical music performances and education in their communities.
The Academy of Early Music is the only organization in Southeast Michigan that presents a concert series dedicated exclusively to historically informed performances of music composed before 1800. Your support is critical to sustaining this unique cultural resource and helping us deliver outstanding performances of early classical music and enriching educational opportunities to Southeast Michigan. The Academy of Early Music is a 501(c)(3) organization, and all contributions are tax-deductible to the limits permissible by law.
Ticket sales only cover about 40% of our total costs. Without your support, the Academy's concerts programs simply would not exist in the communities we serve.
Annual Gifts and Membership
Contributors of at least $25 annually ($15 for students) become members of the Academy of Early Music and are eligible to receive discounted admission to regularly-priced concerts and reserved section seating when available at no additional cost.

Program Book Advertisements
The Academy’s program book consists of two components: an outer jacket used for the entire concert season and an inner section that is concert specific.
The outer jacket is a full-color glossy booklet with finished dimensions of 5½” w x 8½” h. Advertisements are available in quarter, half, and full page sizes.
The inner section contains program notes, artist biographies, and other information relevant to that day’s concert. It is in black and white with the same dimensions as above and is printed on demand prior to an ensemble’s engagement. Advertisements for this section are available in half and full page sizes only and are contingent upon space availability.
With prices starting at $175 for a color advertisement running for eight months, the Academy’s program book is an affordable way to reach a sophisticated audience from Southeast Michigan’s most affluent communities. It also helps reflect your commitment to arts and culture in our region, which your customers appreciate.
