Premiering April 29 at 8pm and available to watch through May 9.
On Thursday, April 29th, we are excited to come together for a virtual Spring Gala Concert benefitting the musicians of Pro Arte. This event is inspired by the success of our first fundraising event last April when the pandemic had stopped all music-making in its tracks and musicians of all kinds lost opportunities to work and make a living.
With our Spring 2021 Gala Concert, we are hoping to raise $8,000 in support of Pro Arte and its musicians. As the pandemic has continued, the needs of individual artists and arts organizations have not yet abated. Last year we raised over $7,000 in support of our musicians, guaranteeing that we were able to put on performances throughout 2020-2021. We think that the modest increase in our fundraising target is attainable and essential for helping us continue making music in the coming year.
The concert program features Grieg's Holberg Suite, op. 40 and Schubert's Octet in F Major, D. 803. We are thrilled to have Lina Gonzalez-Granados join us as guest conductor for this event. This event is presented for free, but we sincerely hope you will consider making a donation.
CONTRIBUTE TO THE FUNDRAISER
Thanks to a generous initiative by current and former members of the Board of Trustees, every dollar contributed up to $5,000 will be matched for this event. Every amount helps and each dollar of your support goes further toward helping us reach our goal.
