The Opportunity of Sponsorship
Dear Friend of the Muskoka Concert Association:
Please seize this opportunity to be part of the seventy second ( that's right - 72nd!) year of bringing live, acoustic, classical music to Muskoka. When the summer people have gone and before the snowbirds fly south for the winter, we who live in Muskoka have long enjoyed the superb quality of the live, acoustic music that the MCA has brought to the Gravenhurst Opera House every year.
The board of directors of the MCA are proud of the amazing talent we have hired for the 2017-18 year, Duo Concertante, Voice of a Nation a collaborative family concert featuring indigenous artists presented by the Toronto Concert Orchestra led by Kerry Stratton, Metropolitan Silver Band and Broadsway. We do, however, depend upon the help of our friends to do so. Sales of memberships and single-concert tickets cover only our most basic expenses. The success of our association, a registered charitable organization, relies heavily on the contributions of our donors and on the support of our sponsors and advertisers. As we are sure you are well aware, the costs of theatre rental, marketing and communication are ever increasing. If you have supported us in the past, we thank you very much again and applaud your contribution to the cultural life of Muskoka. If this is your first time, the MCA welcomes you to our cause.
Please consider the options of support outlined below in order to select the one (or ones!) you find most appropriate. Please note that all purchased advertising and sponsorship include year-round promotion on this website and on our Facebook page. Please follow the directions below to give us your contact information. Please make cheques payable to The Muskoka Concert Association.
