Dear Symphony Supporter,
Our regular season of concerts which are offered free of charge to several thousand music lovers every year continue being received with acclaim and enthusiasm. It is our mission to make attending symphonic concerts of high artistic value possible for all. With all the volunteer hours that are put into these free concerts, performances of such elevated standards cost money and we are currently operating at a sizable deficit for the year.
As a non profit arts organization, we are accustomed to fiscal challenges. Our supporters appreciate the effort that goes into what we offer to the public free of charge. Their faith and donations have kept us going for 60 years. Unfortunately while we are working harder and accomplishing more than ever, we are also facing a tougher financial situation. We hope you would consider helping us by making a larger tax deductible gift this year.
Santa Monica Symphony offers more to the community than its regular free concerts. Smaller groups of orchestra members have given many exciting performances in area schools this season. In April we expect 1000 elementary school children from 10 schools in the area to arrive in busses to attend the upcoming Children's Concert at the Civic Auditorium. This concert, entitled "Large and Small -- High and Low", includes Concerto for Piccolo and Contrabassoon by Damian Montano featuring Susan Greenberg and "Buckaroo Holiday" and "Hoe-down" from Copland's Rodeo.
Our next regular concert in May, includes, Beethoven: Leonore Overture No. 1, Op.138; features David Garrett, in a performance of Saint-Saens: Cello Concerto No. 1, in A Minor, Op. 33; and Brahms: Symphony No. 2 in D Minor, Op. 73, will be performed as planned because we are counting on the contributions of supporters like you to make these concerts possible.
On the horizon, scheduled for 2:00 pm Monday, January 15, 2007, is a concert honoring the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. celebrating the music of the old Negro spirituals using a classical music repertoire. This concert is being planned as part of the 23rd annual Martin Luther King Day celebration held in Santa Monica. Internationally acclaimed artists of color will be invited to perform.
Please, help the Symphony maintain its high standards and keep its momentum in providing the wonderful gift of music to the larger public.
