President's Letter

Dear Friends:                                                                                                   October, 2017

 

As we launch our 69th Season, we are reminded that it is the support of our loyal audience members which has allowed us to become the longest standing community choral group in Los Angeles.  We are eternally grateful for your continued support as we bring beautiful music right into our community and strive to enhance all our lives with melody, song and joy.  We are grateful that you enable us to do what we love and hope that we will be fortunate enough to go on doing it for many years to come.  Thank you all.

 

Our Season begins with a Holiday Concert – “Bells Ringing, Choirs Singing” a selection of seasonal music which can be enjoyed by all, however you celebrate the season. As the title suggests we will be accompanied by a Handbell Choir and also a violin on some pieces. Save the date, Sunday, December 10th 2017 at 4pm.

 

Alfred, Lord Tennyson wrote “In the Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love”.  We will examine this theory with our Spring Concert “Madrigals and Lovesongs”.   

Sunday, April 8th 2018 at 4pm.

 

Summer will bring something for everyone as we present the Three Bs- “Big Band, Broadway & Beatles”.  There will surely be some music in there to get the memories flowing, set your feet tapping and put a smile on your face. This is our popular Annual Ice Cream Social and we look forward to spending a summer afternoon with you, indulging in ice cream sundaes and great music. Sunday, June 24th 2018, Concert 4pm. Ice cream 3:15pm.

 

Your financial support is critical to our existence, our future and the quality of our concerts.  Sheet music, instrumentalists and soloists, which immensely enhance our programs and make them more enjoyable for our audiences, are expensive to procure.  We need your continuing support to achieve this. Our Donor Program “And Now Presenting” enables you to provide much needed and appreciated support and get special recognition in our programs. You may sponsor a song or a contracted musician and get free season tickets! We welcome donations in any amount. Please see enclosed Donor information sheet for more details.  If you shop with a Ralph’s rewards card go to www.ralphs.com and select The Concert Singers, or you can provide the NPO #83494. Once you’ve registered your card, a percentage of the dollars you spend at Ralph’s will go to The Concert Singers – a great and easy way to support us!

 

Our 2017-18 Season Brochure, with more information about our up coming season and how you can get a discount by purchasing a season ticket for all three of our concerts is available for download.  Please visit our website at www.theconcertsingers.com for interesting articles about The Concert Singers and also “like” us on Facebook!

 

Thank you for your loyalty, we truly appreciate the continuing support of our wonderful audiences.
