SUPPORT THE MUSIC SERIES IN 2018-19

We are so fortunate to have your generous contributions dedicated to the Cultural Events Committee Music Series. While we always have enthusiastic audiences for these concerts, the free-will offerings, ticket sales and donations at the door simply
do not cover the actual expenses of underwriting these excellent performances. Since we are dedicated to producing only high-quality and inspirational events,
your donations truly “bridge the gap” and make that possible.

If you are already one of our patrons, you might consider moving up to the next level of giving. In addition to the tax advantage, your name will be printed on the back of every program for the entire 2018-19 concert year. You are also welcome to underwrite (or partially sponsor) a specific concert with appropriate recognition. Please contact our Director of Worship, Music and the Arts, Dr. Stanley M. Wicks, at 619-297-4366, ext. 135 or for more information.


Thank you for your continued support; we look forward to seeing you at the Music Series concerts this season and for many years to come!
