musings of a professional bassoonist
The ABC Symphony's mission is to advance a symphony orchestra of the highest artistic standard for the enrichment and well-being of the area. This mission is achieved through a strong connection to the community, and in-depth understanding of the marketplace and a commitment to providing programming that meets the needs and desires of the community. The ABC Symphony performs a diverse array of classical, pops, family and educational concerts each season, reaching an estimated 500,000 people through live performances and radio broadcasts.ABC Symphony clearly understands its "what" and even its "how". What's completely missing is its "why". I'm willing to bet that ABC Symphony has difficulty attracting the donations it needs to sustain itself.
The ABC Symphony believes in the power of classical music to transform lives. We present classical, pops, educational and family concerts, in various venues and media, so that our music is able to touch each and every life in ABC City and its environs.I'd donate to that orchestra, because I, too, believe in the power of classical music to transform lives! How about you?
