BACH

FESTIVAL 77th Season


Become a

2014 Musician Sponsor YOU CAN HELP BRING THE FINEST MUSICIANS TO CARMEL THIS SUMMER BY BECOMING A MUSICIAN SPONSOR TODAY. The Carmel Bach Festival’s Musician Sponsorship program is a fun and illuminating way to engage more fully in the Festival and help ensure that we continue to attract the finest musicians to Carmel each summer. Becoming a Musician Sponsor is easy to do! Look through this booklet and choose a musician(s) you would like to sponsor. Fill out the form provided and fax or mail it with a check or credit card number to the Carmel Bach Festival. Sponsors are invited to meet their musician at the Musician Welcome Party in Carmel on July 8th to discuss the works being performed, gain perspective on a professional musician’s life, or just share a laugh. Youth Chorus Sponsors meanwhile, are supporting the next generation of artists and see first-hand the future of choral music. As the Festival approaches we will send you details on your sponsored musician(s) performances. If both musician and sponsor agree, we share contact information so you are able to meet your musician during the Festival. Recognition of your sponsorship will appear in the 2014 Commemorative Program if your commitment arrives by May 24. Your contribution is vital to help offset the cost of fees, housing and travel for our musicians. We truly appreciate your support.
