You did it! Thanks to your support, this year Musica Pacifica recorded a new album, brought in many dazzling guest artists, and celebrated our 25th anniversary!

Missed #GivingTuesday? No worries! We're excited to announce a fun, new way to celebrate this season of giving, and help bring music to the world. Now, you can accomplish your gift-giving and year-end giving in one easy step! With each of the powerful gifts below, your loved ones will receive:

• your choice of a beautiful paper or e-card to send them,
• a free ticket to any of our 2017 concerts,
• and acknowledgement in our program.  

Your monthly recurring donation, at the level you choose, is painlessly automatic, and can be canceled at any time simply by logging in to PayPal -- no annoying customer service calls for you! The power to bring music to the world is in your hands.

These meaningful gifts help us bring classical music education to a much wider audience. Your loved ones will be happy to get a free ticket to a concert of their choice (unless you keep it for yourself! We won't tell) and even happier to know that their gift is helping them enrich their world with the arts.

If you'd like your cards to arrive in time for Christmas, please order them by Dec. 10! After that, we'll do our best, but we can only guarantee it if ordered by the tenth.

Please note that these gifts are not tax-deductible! If you simply need a year-end tax solution, scroll to the end of this newsletter for more traditional donation options.

We love bringing in guest artists to perform for you, and we know you love it too! Over the past year, your gifts have let us bring in acclaimed Celtic fiddlers Laura Risk and David Greenberg, Grammy-nominated countertenor Ryland Angel, and the stunning soprano Dominique LaBelle.

With a recurring donation of just over $1.50 a day, you can honor your loved ones by bringing in a guest artist in their name!

"Laura Risk's fiddle is a revelation and achingly beautiful." - Ken Burns, Grammy-winning filmmaker

This level helps us travel to a city near you or the ones you love! Your $29 donation each month helps us bring educational programs to students of all ages, as well as masterclasses, ensemble coaching, and community engagement programs. In 2017 alone, we already plan to bring a newfound understanding of sizzling baroque music to Texas, Montana, and Washington, and we hope to do much more!

"The standout -- perhaps of the entire festival -- was the chamber group Musica Pacifica, in a superb concert of Neapolitan Baroque works. [They] combined masterly control with risk-taking spontaneity.”— Early Music [UK]

Last, but certainly not least!

Not everyone knows that many of the pieces we perform are our own arrangements, often resurrecting pieces that have not been heard in centuries.

A recurring donation of $15 a month helps give us the resources we need to create an arrangement of a sonata, concerto, or folk tune for the enjoyment of you and your loved ones!

"The California-based Musica Pacifica showed why its musicians have been winning an international reputation as early music specialists.... The effect was transporting — a small miracle of precision and musical electricity." —Washington Post
