End-of-year appeal from Cappella Romana

In support of an organization which does work I support and believe is very important, I pass on the following.

I’m writing to ask you to make a gift today to support Cappella Romana’s important work in Orthodox music.

This January, the world premiere of Kontakion on the Nativity by Antiochian composer Richard Toensing will require 30 singers — nearly twice our normal size. Individual gifts are critical to ensure our success, making up nearly 50% of the budget; grants and corporate support come only in addition to individual support from people like you.

Your gift of $25, $50, $100 – or whatever amount you choose – gives you a role in the timeless, world-class Orthodox music that you value. Your gift is also tax-deductible as the law provides.

This year, donors in North America giving $100 or more by December 31 will receive a free gift: the CD, Byzantium: 330-1453.

We are asking everyone in Cappella’s family (nearly 4,000 in our worldwide email list) to participate with a gift right now in a true grass-roots effort. It’s more important than ever. We’re saving precious resources by using email and online giving opportunities instead of costly printed materials and postage. If you prefer, feel free to write a check and mail it to our address below.

If you know someone who loves Cappella Romana like you do, be sure to pass on this message by clicking on “forward this email to a friend.”

Thank you for your support,

Richard here… Just for fun, this seems like as good a place as any to add this performance of Cappella Romana with Ioannis Arvanitis:
