Make This A "Friend-Raising" Year!

A large part of the Bach Fest Board’s job is fundraising. Equally important is “Friend Raising”. You can be a big help to Bach Fest by doing a little “Friend Raising” yourself. It’s easy! Just invite your friends to attend one or more Bach Fest events with you. Ask them to join you for a Noon Concert, or any of the free events scheduled at the area wineries. Invite them to the “Courtyard Concert” events at the Episcopal Church Garden. If they are uncertain about Classical Music, invite them to our Saturday Pops Style Concert at Riverwalk where they are certain to hear something familiar. Your guests will have a great time, and will discover what a wide variety of music we present at our Festival each year. Please make it a point to “Friend Raise” for this year’s Bach Fest! You’ll be glad you did! (And so, of course,will we!)
