Give Joy!

Betsy Branch

A season of change…

The Portland Revels has honored the dependable cycle of the seasons for nearly 30 years, celebrating with this wonderfully unique, engaged community. At this moment, we face a new season of our own as we bid a bittersweet farewell to two valued, long-time members of our company: Music Director Robert Lockwood and Associate Music Director Betsy Branch.

Now is the time to honor their legacies!

This is a crucial moment for the Portland Revels, and financial support from our community is more important than ever.  We are seeking to create a sustainable, stable organization that will continue celebrating the turning of the seasons from dark to light and back again.

Your gift during the Give Joy! campaign will honor Robert and Betsy’s legacies by helping to ensure the ongoing stability of the Portland Revels, and enabling us to connect with new people, places and traditions as we continue to celebrate the turning of each year

We invite you to give a joyful donation in honor of Betsy and Robert’s immeasurable contributions to the Portland Revels over the past 25 years, and help see to it that the music never ends.
