Bach Aria Soloists Reviews
I am a founding board member of this extraordinary group, the Bach Aria Soloists. They are celebrating their 10th exciting concert season this year as a self-presenting ensemble, a great achievement in the fiercely competitive arts marketplace especially in this recessionary economy. The Artistic Director/Founder, Elizabeth Suh Lane's visionary leadership has brought world-class artists- musicians, dancers, composers, scholars-to Kansas City to collaborate and leading local partners- the KC Chorale, the KC Public Library, Owen/Cox Dance, KC guest artists- have invited the BAS to partner. The KC community is the fortunate recipient of their marvelous talent and creative programs. The Hauskonzert series is a popular success because both the BAS and our patrons believe in the mission of bringing the brilliance of Bach, Baroque and contemporary to new life in intimate spaces. The audience and artists can make a much greater connection when one removes the physical distance of big concert halls and these artists make a point of communicating with their informative performances, and free BachReach Open education to schools. Their Community concerts have also been sold out and at capacity in recent years, such a great testament to the quality and reputation of this fine ensemble. I really hope that the Bach Aria Soloists can be a part of your Arts appreciation campaign, as they are a leading chamber music ensemble in the region.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
concerts, in board meetings, in the media, in funder meetings, in conversations with the community and friends.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the wonderful concert experience, not just the music but the camaraderie and team effort among artists, audience and boardmembers, that whole circular experience of getting to the gratifying goal of a sold-out concert.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
extremely hard-working, dedicated, even inspired.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
pay the Artistic Director, musicians, Executive Assistant and volunteers properly for their professional services; rent out any desirable venue in the country; invite many more of world renowned guest artists that the Artistic Director desires;marketing
