Classical Voice of North Carolina (CVNC) depends on donors like you for more than 60% of our income. This year, donations are lower than they have been in years. We need you more than ever!

Each month, presenters submit more than 300 events for our calendar. We pay our critics and editors to review fewer than 50 of those. Therefore, more than 250 worthy concerts, plays, dance performances, and art exhibits do not receive our professional reviews that help the presenters hone their craft and draw audiences.

Our Arts Journalism Intern Program for performing and visual arts students is popular and growing across the state. As many arts audiences are graying, CVNC student interns bring their fresh perspectives to our readers and to our writers. Encourage these students through your donations!

We post links to all reviews on our Facebook page and Twitter feed. Be one of the first to know a review has been posted by friending on Facebook or by following us @CVNCorg on Twitter. Please share these links with your friends.

We are eager to visit with you in person, so please join us on June 29, 2014, for a program and discussion at Ruggero Piano in Raleigh (see enclosed invitation). We will also be in Greenville at The Music House for their Summer Music Festival in July. Watch for more information about this event on our website.

We took a leap of faith and increased our services to arts communities across our state. Maintaining this level of service requires your generosity We need you more than ever!
