Dear Resonance Supporter,
As Resonance Ensemble celebrates its tenth season, I’ve been reflecting on how we’ve stayed true to our founding ideals, and at the same time evolved in a way I couldn’t have anticipated a decade ago.
In a city rich with great art, Resonance Ensemble is unique. Our concerts are thoughtfully programmed to reflect our times from a variety of often-neglected viewpoints. We collaborate with artists who create for the world in which we live — artists like Resonance Poet in Residence S. Renee Mitchell, who writes a thought-provoking poem for each concert, each one stunningly beautiful and perfectly capturing the essence of themes of the show. Artists like Damien Geter, Resonance singer and composer, who is working on his powerful African American Requiem, to be premiered next season by Resonance Ensemble. Artists like composer Melissa Dunphy, whose work you’ve heard in previous concerts, and who is writing a specially commissioned piece for our February 2019 concert, Women Singing Women.
Your contributions help us touch lives. Anyone who seeks a meaningful artistic experience will find it with Resonance Ensemble, whether as a singer, a collaborator, or an audience member.
You make this vital work possible. Ticket sales cover a fraction of our costs. Every dollar you give directly supports our performances and our mission.
Your gift to Resonance can be used in many ways. For example:
Your donation of $50 pays for sheet music for one piece performed at a concert.
Your donation of $350 pays the fee for an artist for one of our concerts.
Your donation of $4,000 pays for the commission of a new work.
Please send your gift today. Resonance Ensemble relies on your support. We are committed to using music as a way to better understand other perspectives, and to inspire positive change in our community. Your donation makes our community better. Right here. Right now.
Along with our artists, staff, and board, I thank you for your generous partnership and support.
Katherine FitzGibbon, Artistic Director
