YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS

Ticket revenue is not sufficient to fund our work. We are deeply grateful for gifts, at every level, which support world class performances and recordings.

Thank you!

Dear Friends of Blue Heron:

Words cannot describe how deeply grateful we are for your outpouring of support for Blue Heron during this unprecedented health and economic crisis. We asked for your help to ensure our viability not only during this crisis but also into next season, and what we have received from you is beyond expectation. In addition to your inspiring notes of encouragement and gratitude, you dug deep to help us surpass our fundraising goal. For many of you, your additional or first-ever gifts helped us exceed the  $7,500 matching grant goal for a total of $14,000!  Altogether, your generosity helped us exceed our $75,000 fundraising goal  for a total of $90,000!
So much in the world has changed in ways unimaginable. What hasn’t changed is our commitment to provide you with world class concerts and recordings. You make this possible through your generosity and commitment for which we are truly thankful.

Sincerely,


Scott Metcalfe
Artistic Director


Kathleen C. Brittan
Executive Director

We will do the rest.
