Support

Help support Make Music Temecula!

The work of a small army of volunteers makes it possible to pull this off on such a limited budget, but unavoidable costs remain, including: instrument and equipment rentals, software development for the matchmaking system, promotional materials such as signage and t-shirts necessary for the organization, and many smaller items such as insurance and event permitting.

Help cover these costs and be part of bringing the musical merriment to the summer solstice!
