CRWE is dedicated to bringing music to the community for all to enjoy. We continue to offer our concerts free of charge.  Although our concerts are free for the community, they are not free for us to perform.  We pay rental fees for both our rehearsal and concert venues, purchase or rent the music we perform, transport large percussion instruments, and cover other necessary expenses.

Therefore, donations from our patrons are vital for CRWE to continue.  CRWE is a 501(c)(3) organization (tax ID 04-3490372). Your tax-deductible donation can help us continue to bring music to the community.
