“It means a lot to me in this time of isolation to feel connected and to feel as if who I am and what I do remains important even though so much of our industry as musicians and artists has shut down.”
—Anna Meek, VocalEssence Ensemble Singer
Thank you. Your voice is so needed right now. Fellow singer Anna Meek appreciates you and your commitment to singing through the pandemic. Your friendship has been a lifeline for her during the pandemic and she cannot wait to join you side by side to sing together again.
This year’s On Demand concert experience is only possible because of people like you.
Because of the pandemic, VocalEssence is in a different place financially than we’ve ever been at this time of year. We’ve reduced our budget as much as possible, and shifted to virtual programming & concerts—all of which takes more resources, new skills, and patience.
This year, the difference between what ticket sales cover and what it truly takes to bring On Demand concerts to you is $248,680. The good news: There is just $74,293.52 left to fully fund the VocalEssence mission in 2020.
We know this may be a challenging time for you and your family. If you are able to give a contribution today, you’ll be a part of bringing the joy of music to more people.
Join the compassionate group of monthly sustaining donors to allow VocalEssence to spend more resources creating magical online experiences for people like you. In addition, sustaining donors who give up to $20 will receive a branded VocalEssence campfire mug, and donors who give $20 or more per month will receive a branded chenille blanket.
Your gift of any size WILL bring a bright light to others like Anna, especially during these uncertain times. Wishing you and your family good health and happiness.
Mary Ann Aufderheide, Executive Director
