I am thrilled to welcome you to GVOC’s 44th season, which is a celebration of music and visual arts throughout the year. We will once again be collaborating with the Eastman Community Music School’s Children’s Choir and Youth Chamber Singers for our March concert. Together, we will once again celebrate connections and examine music as it relates to construction, color and chaos. I welcome you to join us as we continue the tradition of diverse programming which has something to offer everyone.
It is through season subscriptions and our annual campaign that we can offer the unique programming you have come to expect over the years. In addition to being able to produce three major concerts a year, your support also helps our community outreach efforts. Over the years, we have been able to grow our outreach efforts by over 425%. This means that we can offer more free small concerts in venues like public libraries, nursing homes, memory care centers and assisted living facilities throughout the Greater Rochester region. By doing this, we have the opportunity to provide beautiful music to more people in our region who may not have the means otherwise to attend our concerts.
As a nearly 100% volunteer organization, your contribution to our annual campaign and purchase of season subscriptions go directly back into the community through these outreach efforts.
On behalf of GVOC, I want to thank you for helping us continue our mission of bringing affordable, quality music to our local community.
