Ways to Donate Consort Circles Planned Giving Corporate, Foundation & Government J. Reilly Lewis Legacy Fund
Corporations have played a critical role in supporting the Washington Bach Consort and have helped it become the nation’s premier Baroque chorus and orchestra. We invite you to become engaged with the Consort.
Corporate Sponsors have played a crucial role in some of our most memorable accomplishments. Completing Bach’s entire 215-cantata cycle, our archive being welcomed into the Library of Congress’ permanent collection, doubling ticket sales, and greatly extending the reach of our community programs would not be possible without the support of our Corporate Sponsors.
Bringing the finest quality, authentic Baroque performances to Washington audiences is expensive. The Consort engages only the highest caliber musicians. Many require transportation to and from Washington, DC, as well as lodging while here. Add to that concert hall rental, period instrument maintenance and tuning, and the cost of producing archival recordings and concert programs and you begin to see how bringing this incredible resource to the community is a million-dollar-per-year endeavor.
As a Corporate Sponsor, you will receive exclusive invitations to Consort events hosted by members of its Board, tickets to world-class performances, and recognition in all media promoting the nation’s premier Baroque ensemble.
