Crackerjack hooks and memorable melodies aren’t enough. The best performers take it a step further and develop a memorable experience for their audiences.

We need your help to support our community

Did you know the Music Circus is a non-profit organization? Maybe not, we don’t hold fundraisers, giving campaigns or telethons like other organizations.  We are supported entirely on ticket sales to the shows you look forward to every summer. Instead of keeping that cash like other music venues, we give it back to the community in the form of grants supporting education and the arts.

Now we’re asking for your help to continue our support of the communities we call home.

Vinyl is gaining ground among rock fans says’s Will Oremus.
