How much should I donate?

You can donate in any amount. Kathryn recommend you donate what you would normally spend to attend a recital – or more if you can – but truly any amount will help IlluminArts.

How will I get my ticket?

Once you have made a donation to IlluminArts, simply email Kathryn at and say "I've made a donation to IlluminArts and would like an invitation to Black Voices Matter."

You will then receive an invitation via email which will contain a Zoom link for the recital. You'll also receive a PDF program several days before the recital.

Do I need to tell you how much I donated to IlluminArts, or send you a receipt?

No and no! We're going by the honor system here. Thank you for your support of IlluminArts, which like all artistic organizations is dealing with unprecedented challenges.
