Membership Information & Registration

 

The Hiawatha Music Co-op has a membership program that helps fund additional traditional music events during the year, gives us a cushion against unexpected expenses, and also helps us keep a small staff and office, which, in turn, helps the Festival and other events run more smoothly.

Membership begin at each Festival and the benefits are good through the entire next year. For Example: Memberships purchased/renewed at the 2017 Festival are good through December 31,2018.  

If you have a $5 lifetime membership from the earlier days of the Music Co-op, IT IS STILL GOOD! Hiawatha will continue to honor those lifetime memberships. Life members will receive all newsletters and can vote at the annual meeting and serve on the board of directors, same as always. However, if you are a life member who can support HMC annually as part of the current program, we invite you to do so.

An annual membership of $25 and up entitles you to receive one $5 Festival ticket discount.

Only members receive twice-yearly newsletters. Non-members on our mailing list still receive Festival information, and, anyone can check our website for Hiawatha news. But, those who want to receive the newsletter need to be members. 

All Hiawatha’s costs continue to rise: performer fees, venue rentals, printing, postage, taxes (yes, we pay them, even as a non-profit), etc. So please take this opportunity to support the Hiawatha Music Co-op and its commitment to traditional American music.

You can print this form, complete it and mail it with your check or credit-card information to

Hiawatha Music Co-op
PO Box 414
Marquette, MI 49855

Or, you can complete the form online.

We’ll add you to the mailing list and send you a membership card and any other items included at your chosen membership level.
