RCCA is grateful for your ongoing generosity
Dear Subscribers and friends of the Rockford Coronado Concert Association,
Our 82nd season is here with truly World Class performances.
In 2017, Ailey II, The Havana Cuban All Stars, and the Five Irish Tenors exhilarated our audiences in some very special ways.The excitement the artists showed on stage brought our subscribers and many first time attendees to their feet.We look forward to THIS season's RCCA Performances that will begin again February 8th, 2018 with YAMATO - The Drummers of Japan.
The RCCA is most grateful to the large numbers of subscribers who make a donation above and beyond the subscription price to support the organization. It is these generous gifts that make it possible for the RCCA to engage the very best artists in the world to come to Rockford.
DID YOU KNOW...
The subscription price for our season covers only 66% of the cost of presenting the season. The balance is made up of gifts and grants from our loyal and supportive donors.
As this season of giving comes to a close, my message is clear and concise.
FIRST, a heartfelt thanks for all your gifts in the past and future to RCCA.Without you, we would not have been able to excite our audience as we have.
SECOND, thank-you subscribers for your commitment to "The Season." Your support over the years has allowed us the opportunity to bring such fine performers to the Coronado. You are the stable factor that allows us to budget and plan for each new season.
And THIRD, please join me with a gift to RCCA, allowing us to continue to excite, open the doors to new faces, and to bring the beauty of World Class Music and Dance within the grand and historic Coronado Theatre.We all know and understand how the "Arts" bring beauty into the world, expand the mind, and excite!
It may be beneficial for you to make a charitable donation while the year is still 2017. Seek guidance from your tax advisor, and consider a donation below.
Thank you, I look forward to seeing you again in 2018 at the Coronado! Best wishes for a beauty-filled new year.
