EVENT DATE Aug 01, 2016

THE STORY:

Kolkata Classics is enriching the cultural tapestry of India & working to uplift the underprivileged both body and soul.  We provide donated health services for trafficked women, educate children from the slums to the elite and expose the citizens of Kolkata to high quality, western classical music.  We are dedicated to the principle that music is uplifting and enriching to the soul.  

By working together, you and the Kolkata Classics have an opportunity to increase interest in culture in Kolkata, and therefore positively impact the heart of the city of Joy. By working with Kolkata Classics on this concert series your organization will be able to present itself as a socially committed company among its customers and stakeholders.

Starting in December 2014 with internationally acclaimed soprano Susan Williams and pianist Jennifer Heemstra we organized 42 concerts for over 50,000 people.  There has been tremendous response from the city and the press.  Attached are a few press clips from both local and international outlets.

The Kolkata Classics second season will feature performances by international artists, university professors & Broadway singers.  Here is a valuable opportunity to showcase your organization as a patron of quality art and champion of social causes.

Artists will tour Kolkata for two weeks, donating their time and talent. During that time, we program the following at a minimum:

  • A free open-to-all concert for the general public at Max Muller Bhavan.
  • A private concert for sponsors, leaders in the city and your invitees at The Park Hotel
  • Concert for South City and NGO school children at South City International School
  • A Health Fair and concert for the underprivileged at Uttam Mancha, Kalighat

In addition to the support of the artists themselves, we have sponsorship in Kolkata from:   

  • South City International School
  • Braganza & Co.
  • Jyoti Sachdev Fashion
  • Max Mueller Bhavan
  • The Park Hotel
  • The Telegraph
  • 91.9 Friends FM
  • City Services

While the sponsors on board cover the in country logistics, we need support for international & domestic flights to include transportation of instruments.  Below is a schedule of sponsorship for your review.  We would be happy to meet with you to take this forward.
