DONATE: YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
The Montreal Chamber Music Festival is a world-class event dedicated to the presentation of chamber music in all of its forms. We strive to combine the mentor-apprentice relationship of seasoned iconic artists sharing the stage with young outstanding talents and future stars. We bring musical milestones and rarely played works to the forefront.
We bring intriguing programming to an outstanding venue offering you an experience that is uncomplicated. We want you to feel welcome and do our best to offer you the opportunity to meet and exchange with our artists and to speak your mind to us. We are proud of our audience which is known to be one of the finest in the country. We are proud of our international exposure through WGBH Boston and selected stations among the 800 member stations of American Public Media, through the 198 member countries of Medici.tv, through the 58 member countries of the European Union Broadcast network. Millions listen to us each year. Hundreds of thousands have come to our concerts. Each one of you is important to us.
We have been celebrated and our success acknowledged both here and abroad. In 2012 alone, we won the Grand Prix du Tourisme québécois Regional Award, the silver medal in the Grand Prix du Tourisme québécois National Awards, the Prix Coup d’Éclat and two Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Awards, one for Denis Brott, our Founder and Artistic Director, and one for our President, Michael Boer.
Our artists, our hall, the program you will be reading all have to be paid for and we are rare in that only 25% of our annual budget comes from government agencies. Our budgets are balanced and we have no debt, a remarkable accomplishment for an arts organization.
The rest of our budget comes from ticket sales, sponsorships, fundraising evenings and donations.
And this is where you come in.
The true price of your concert ticket is much more than we will ever ask of you. You can help us make up the difference with a contribution at a level with which you are comfortable. Every dollar donated will receive a full tax receipt. Every dollar you offer will be appreciated and properly spent. Nothing is wasted.
