It is again that time of year when we should all take a little time to reflect on the joy and pleasures we have gained from our local early music groups, musicians and associations. While many of these are driven by a collected sense of volunteerism, I believe we are all too well aware that without any kind of financial backing, many of our concerts and venues would no doubt disappear.
It is then, at this time of year, when the year end is near, that we should contemplate helping our local early music groups generously or even “mildly generously” with their funding drives. No amount is too small to give. You may also find that some government incentives may reward your philanthropic gesture on your year’s income tax filings (check with your government tax rules, as these differ from country to country).
Please do give generously to your local early music groups and also consider volunteering your help. After all, we all gain from a healthy and strong local early music scene.
With many thanks for your generosity. May you all have a great December month of concerts.
