Chorale Bel Canto
Expresses heartfelt thanks!
In April we received a remarkably generous $50,000 from the Pitts Family Foundation. This inspired us to plan for longevity and design our impact on the future.
In May we invited you to
Come With us Into the Future!
And contribute to our campaign to match $25,000 of that gift by our first concert of the 2014-15 season.
And you did!
Throughout the summer heatwave the temperature continued to rise!
On October 26 H.M.S. Pinafore sailed away with a standing ovation crowd “on shore” clapping through five bows!
The thermometer reached its peak--$25,000 had been raised!
We thank you for helping us honor the Pitts gift and ensure that tomorrow’s generations enjoy the music we all value today.
These gifts enabled us to complete our three-year Strategic Plan, move to our new rehearsal home at Trinity Lutheran Church in Whittier, purchase our very own grand piano, establish a long-term investment fund, increase our professional staff, and mount the delightfully successful production of H.M.S. Pinafore with Opera A La Carte.
The gifts you have made will help us solidify our staffing, partner with other arts groups, such as The Pasadena Civic Ballet and its ArtsPlus branch, which will join us in our May presentation of Gian-Carlo Menotti’s The Unicorn, the Gordon and the Manticore, expand our performance outreach program to new audiences, and begin an educational outreach program.
We thank these loyal supporters!
