Like most performing arts organizations, The Rose Ensemble is a people-dependent organization. It is not uncommon to spend two years or more conducting the extensive research necessary to create just one new concert production. In addition to the countless hours spent rehearsing, our talented musicians can also be found in classrooms throughout the state conducting in-school residencies with students of all ages. The historical accuracy and artistic integrity of each performance is a hallmark of The Rose Ensemble that has garnered national and international acclaim. This investment of time and money that could never be recouped via ticket sales is what sets The Rose Ensemble apart from our local peers and vocal ensembles across North America.
Your support will enable us to deliver performances that entertain, educate and inspire; as well as enable us to “think big” in terms of collaboration, performance and educational outreach in our 21st Performance Season. Through the power and beauty of music, we are able to explore themes of spirituality, humanity, politics and language that build bridges between cultures and across centuries. In many cases, were it not for The Rose Ensemble, stories of historical significance would not be told at all.
Many companies will match gifts made by employees or their spouses to The Rose Ensemble, even if they are retired. To double the impact of your gift, simply obtain a matching gift form from your employers HR office and return it to The Rose Ensemble with your gift.
