It's been really hot this summer, so we've been staying inside, adding the finishing touches to our upcoming season! Parts have been ordered or are in production, each concert's program is being finalized, and we're becoming really excited to share an eighth season of music with you all!
Season tickets are now on sale! If all five of our season's concerts sound of interest, then a season ticket might be right for you. Season tickets offer a 20% discount off of the combined cost of five individual concert tickets. If you'd rather pay as you go, links to individual tickets for our first two programs can be found in the left-hand menu of this message.
ABO could never flourish without your help, and there are so many ways you can do just that. You can securely make a tax-deductible donation by clicking here, and we'll mail you a receipt. Or, you may mail us a check or bring it to us at a concert.
Do you think that being philanthropic requires making large donations? Think again! There's power in micro-funding! For example, ABO has 1,150 "likes" on Facebook. If every person who followed us on Facebook donated just $10, we'd earn $11,500 – proof that there is power in working together to support something we all value and love, all for less than the cost of two trips to Starbucks!
Some support doesn't cost you a thing! We always can use assistance in providing housing for our out-of-town musicians (particularly for our first two programs), and volunteers are always helpful at concerts. Simply email us to find out how you can help in non-financial ways.
We can't wait to see you all in September and beyond. Thank you so very much for your interest and support. Without your love and support, there would be no ABO.
