Dear friends, family, and colleagues
I am writing to you to ask for your support of an organization that I am proud to be part of: The Golden Gate Men’s Chorus. GGMC has been delighting audiences with outstanding men’s choral music for over thirty years. As the current president of this esteemed chorus, I am honored to announce that GGMC will be representing the United States as we compete in the World Choir Games in Riga, Latvia this July. Our international debut on a stage as grand and respected as the World Choir Games is a tremendous musical achievement and an important milestone in our chorus’s history.
Why do we sing? Because, through singing we tell the stories of our lives. Choral music brings us together as a community. It opens the door to understanding, tolerance, compassion, healing, and it unites us in a celebration of the human spirit. By contributing to GGMC you are bringing more choral music to more people. Your donations fund new choral works by world renowned composers. Your dollars fund scholarships and provide needs-based financial assistance to singers, who in turn are able to share their talents with all of us. And, much more.
We are grateful for all the support we have received over the years and hope that you will consider being a part of our community by making a tax deductible contribution to the Golden Gate Men’s Chorus. Support us at any level, $25, $50, $100, $250, $500 or more. Every dollar we receive is a treasured gift that we strive to return to you as we present our annual concerts, produce recordings, and perform live at special events across the nation.
Please join us for our upcoming concerts May 17, 18, and 20, appropriately entitled “The Road to Riga” as we present the stunning program we will be singing on our Baltic tour and at the World Choir Games held in Riga, Latvia July 9 – 19, 2014.
With warm regards,
President, Golden Gate Men’s Chorus
