December 2016 Dear Friends, Classmates, Colleagues, and Fellow Residents, In the face of dwindling governmental and institutional granting possibilities North Shore Chamber Arts Ensemble is embarking on a $25,000 fund raising drive. This is to continue the ensemble’s mission and secure a place for the regular performance of chamber orchestra repertory by a resident ensemble here on the North Shore of Chicago. This would signal an expansion of why the area should be recognized as a year-round “musical arts destination.” Music has been a part of my life for over 50 years; performing on professional stages here, throughout the country, and in Europe. It has provided a safe haven to mature artistically. Likewise, without this orchestra, our professional musicians would be denied the opportunity of sharing their artistry with you. Our players come from some of the major performing organizations in Chicago, and while contributing their support through their appearances with us, they have often donated part of their performance fees to maintain the ensemble and ensure continuous performance opportunities. Your donation will allow the ensemble to bring music out of the concert hall directly to the listener through “free” outdoor summer concerts in public spaces while maintaining a regular season of specular performances that have in one critic’s words been “as fine as any heard in major concert halls throughout the world.” No matter what, it is time to step up to ensure that musical richness flourishes here for everyone. If you volunteered to help us, thank you. If you already made a donation this year, thank you. Why not do it again? North Shore Chamber Arts Ensemble is a 501 (C) (3) non-for-profit organization; as such your donation may be tax deductible. If accessible, utilizing your company’s matching gift program leverages an even greater impact for your gift. Yours truly, David Rubens Artistic Director and Principal Conductor North Shore Chamber Arts Ensemble
