Why Support Brightmusic?
Your investment in our music pays off in ways you never imagined.
Brightmusic is composed of highly-skilled, professional musicians. We are Oklahoma City’s resident chamber music ensemble.
However, it may surprise you to learn that our long-term goals go far beyond presenting five or six concerts a year. That is why we are asking for your support beyond what you pay for admission at each concert.
Here are some of our future goals:
- More than anything else, our goal is to add dimension and richness to living in Oklahoma City and Central Oklahoma. By being another “quality of life” asset to the community, living and working here is not only more dynamic to our current Sooners, it is yet another plus why companies and organizations should strongly consider moving here.
- We must keep the compensation of our musicians competitive if we want to continue to attract and retain the finest players in the area. Our musicians love playing for you and we think it’s only fair that we reciprocate by increasing our appreciation to them.
- We want to present larger works to you. However, this means we need more musicians per concert and sometimes, for complex works, more rehearsal time.
- Despite our youth, we have already commissioned and presented five original works composed exclusively for us. At our concert in January 2007, we will present our latest commission in honor of Oklahoma’s Centennial. We want to continue commissioning new works not only because it encourages composers who are interested in our music, it is unparalleled evidence of our deep commitment to our profession, our audiences, and our community.
Just so you know, almost every dollar you contribute goes toward the music as our overhead is extremely low. There are no paid staff members so our extraneous expenses mainly consist of post-concert reception expenses, accounting services, a small advertising effort, and postage for concert mailings.
As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, your contribution may be deductible. Consult your tax advisor for details.
