Thank you for participating in the Match to Amaze.

We appreciate everyone who participated in our Match to Amaze, which doubled every dollar, up to $200,000 donated by local philanthropists Bea and Lau Christensen and former Madison Mayor Joe Sensenbrenner and Mary Ellyn Sensenbrenner. We look forward to sharing the results of our campaign soon.

We still need your help supporting Overture's free and low-cost programming. Please consider making a donation today.

Rest assured, that we will link your donation to your existing ticketing and donating history. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions, please contact Carolyn Hahn at 608-258-4142 or email [email protected]
