Giving: the Piano Fund
For over half a century, the Asheville Chamber Music Series, one of the country’s longest continuous chamber music series, has brought to Asheville many of the world’s leading chamber ensembles. Many of these ensembles have not only performed in the Series’ concerts but have also presented school children with their first chamber music experience.
Ensembles which include a piano are particularly popular. Unfortunately, there has not been a fine piano available for these concerts. The expense of renting a 7 or 9 foot grand piano makes it prohibitive to have more than one concert a year which includes a piano and the quality of a rental cannot be guaranteed.
The Board of the Asheville Chamber Music Series has therefore initiated a campaign to raise $50,000 to purchase a fine piano for chamber programs. The Board is presently working with WCQS to allow this piano to be placed in its climate-controlled on-the-air performance studio and to be used in its weekly concerts which feature both classically trained and jazz musicians.
We sincerely hope that you will assist us in this campaign by making a tax deductible donation to the Piano Fund. Please note that all donations are tax deductible and may be spread out over a three year period.
