FROM THE DIRECTOR OF MUSIC
It’s that time once again! I am excited to invite you to our sixth annual Christmas Concert on Friday, December 14th at 7pm. This year, the choir and orchestra will present John Rutter’s Mass of the Children as our featured work. Mass of the Children, published in 2003, is unlike anything we’ve undertaken before. We will enlist the musical forces of a 70+ voice children’s choir, 60+ adult chorus, and full symphonic orchestra. This work, as well as a new concert format, will make for a truly spectacular event!
I need your help…
The quality of music at Mass can have a profound impact on our experience. Mediocre music can leave us feeling uninspired, or worse, disconnect us from our experience. Good music can lift us up, connecting us to something greater than ourselves. My vision for St. Ben’s has always been that we should be a home for good music, inspiring music, transcendent music. This concert doesn’t just allow us to create good music for one night; the funds we raise literally fund our program for the entire year.
Make a sustained gift and attend the concert for free…
This year, we are focusing on making our program sustainable. Here's an interesting figure: If everyone that purchased a ticket to last year’s event made a sustained monthly gift of $5, our program would be funded three times over! Yes, that’s right, for the price of ONE LATTE per month, we could not only transform our music program, but sustain it indefinitely. Now, just imagine what $10, $15, or $25 could do…
The first 50 people to make a sustained gift of $10 or more per month will receive 2 complimentary general admission tickets to this year’s concert.*
The first 25 people to make a sustained gift of $25 or more per month will receive 2 reserved seating tickets to this year’s event.*
The first 10 people to make a sustained gift of $50 or more per month will receive 2 VIP Conductor’s Circle tickets, which include a special pre-concert reception and front row seats.*
To make a sustained gift, follow the link below and select "Music Program Sponsorship Donation", then select the frequency and amount of your gift.
*Offer ends December 1st, 2018. Once your gift is set up, you will be contacted with ticket collection details. To qualify, the monthly gift must be "ongoing".
