A performance of the B Minor Mass by J.S. Bach is very exciting news! You may have heard that the Bach Cantata Choir will present this masterpiece over the course of our 10th Season. You will certainly want to attend each concert, not only to experience this work, but also to hear other works that help illumine the Mass.
To accomplish this, we need many of you be become more deeply involved. In a normal season, each concert costs around $9,000, most of which is provided by voluntary contributions from you. We are very grateful for your support. Without that support there would be no Bach Cantata Choir. However, as you would expect from a work the scale of the B Minor Mass, we will need extra resources this season. We hope that you can make an extra sponsorship gift of either $100 to become a Friend of the Choir or of $250 to become part of the Director’s Circle. We will offer the following benefits for becoming a B Minor Mass sponsor.
Friends of the Choir ($100)
- Recognition on our website and program.
- Invitation to special events, including a caroling party with the choir, a discussion of the B Minor Mass led by Ralph Nelson and a birthday party for Bach.
Director’s Circle ($250)
- Benefits available to Friends of the Choir.
- Two tickets to the Baroque Holiday Concert.
- Invitation to tour Bond Organ Builders who provides the organ at our concerts.
Sponsorship contributions may be made online or or sent via mail to Bach Cantata Choir, c/o Ralph Nelson, 3570 NE Mathison Pl., Portland, OR 97212. Please be sure that you tell us how you would like to be recognized in our program.
See you at the concert,
Woody Richen, Member of the Board
