Wow! 2018 is almost over! It seems like it was just yesterday that we were ringing in 2018, and now it's already nearly time for 2019!
We are so incredibly thankful for your love and support over the past seven-plus years! None of what we do would be possible without your multifaceted support. Your attendance at concerts, provision of housing for visiting musicians, financial contributions, and enthusiasm in telling your friends and loved ones about us are all crucial to our continued success. Please know that each and every one of us appreciates so very much all that you do. Without you, our audience, there would be no ABO!
Giving Tuesday is a day when non-profit organizations such as us express our gratitude for your generosity in the past, and remind you just how important those contributions are to our continued success. We know many organizations across the country are all asking for help at the same time, but smaller contributions can most certainly add up. For example, if every one of the 1,258 people who "like" us on Facebook were to donate only $10, we'd have $12,580, an amount that would help us provide for a large portion of our needs for the remainder of our season. We would be thrilled to have so many smaller donations that we have to add a page to our concert program to fit all of the names (you may remain anonymous if you'd like, too – just let us know).
If you would like to make a contribution, you make do so by clicking here, which will bring you to our secure server. If you'd rather mail a check, our address can be found on the contribution page as well.
Thank you all again so very much for your support. There is no way we would be able to make beautiful music without you, and we look forward to continuing to entertain and edify you throughout the remainder of our 2018-19 season. We hope to see you in January at Carnevale Veneziano, our musical celebration of seventeenth-century Venice!
