Concert Series Patron Program
We encourage your support by participating in the Patron Program, which funds most of the expenses involved in producing the Concert Series. Since the freewill offerings do not cover the entire costs of the concerts, we need your support to ensure the continuation of this ministry to the community. A listing of all patrons will appear in each concert program. Please refer to the Patron Program Enrollment Form for more details.
