As we approach our 18th year, providing what we hope is interesting and entertaining music, I thought it would be a great time to review your importance to the success of the Central Florida Winds and Chamber Winds.
Our mission (some would say 'passion') is to perform music that is interesting and challenging to both the performer and the audience at the highest artistic level possible for a “volunteer” group. From the musicians' perspective, I believe we have often achieved this goal. The evidence would include the fact that our talented musicians perform as volunteers, and many of the members come from as far away as Tampa, Palm Coast, and Palm Beach to join the musicians of Brevard County. Their only payment is the pleasure of performing with a wonderful ensemble and the recognition that you offer at each concert through your attendance and applause.
But there are costs involved with producing these concerts. They include financial commitments for marketing, purchasing or renting music and instruments, hall rental for rehearsals and concerts, and very minimal administration. Our average cost per concert is $2,000. Our average in donations at each concert is $750. You can now see how important your annual gift as a major contributor is to the continued success of the Central Florida Winds.
We are planning a great program for March 5 with the Central Florida Winds which will include music from many of John Williams movie scores, including “Jaws”, “E.T.”, “Star Wars”, and “Schindler's List”. And on Sunday, May 7, our Central Florida Chamber Winds will present two major works for chamber winds, Richard Strauss' Suite in Bb, and W A Mozart's Serenade No. 10.
Please help us continue our work in 2017 with your gift. The categories for major contributors are listed below. Please consider being a part of our success by being a major contributor to Central Florida Winds and Chamber Winds.
