RCMS is run entirely by volunteers. Performance expenses are over 75% of our budget. Ticket sales cover just 1/3 of our operating expenses with grants and advertising income making up some of the balance. The remainder of our income is from personal contributions. The support by individuals keeps our ticket prices affordable while allowing us to bring world-class performers to the community. RCMS is also active in promoting concerts and educational activities, sponsoring events each season which bring together local school children and underserved populations and our artists.
RCMS has initiated The Rhinebeck Chamber Music Society Fund, an endowment fund administered by The Community Foundation of Dutchess County. For further information, please contact RCMS.
Contributors are recognized in our program at the following levels:
|Sponsor||$1,000 and above|
|Benefactor||$250 to $999|
|Patron||$100 to $249|
|Friend||up to $99|

Volunteers are the backbone of the organization and are always needed. Special skills are not required just willingness and interest. It is a great feeling to know that your efforts have helped to bring these wonderful musicians to perform in our community.
Volunteers come from all over the region and have one thing in common: a love of chamber music.
