My first Bach Aria Soloist event in the spring of 2009 was a collaboration between the Owen/Cox Dance Group and Bach Aria. It was spectacular! The vividness of the music and modern dance performances captured my soul. This concert delivered a very genuine, personal experience that has made me a proud supporter of Bach Aria Soloist. I was concerned that I may have seen their best, but subsequent concerts have produced the same spectacular, high-caliber performances. I have enjoyed the house concert series which has provided me the opportunity to sit within arm-reach of the performers as I watch and listen to the extraordinary talents that comprise this group. It is truly an impactful, personal experience, and I committed myself to applying my own talents to help promote the work of Bach Aria Soloists.

The Bach Aria Soloists are a Kansas City treasure. The level of expertise is unmatched- always at the highest skill level of the core musicians and guest artists. And imaginative? Oh my- always setting the stage for a higher level experience with the music- world premieres, inventive collaborations, enlightening world-renowned speakers, and the list goes on. How fortunate we are to have the Bach Aria Soloists, and the founder/artistic director/executive director and amazing solo violinist, Elizabeth Suh Lane, in our midst!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many formats including public concerts, private in-home concerts, student education, rehearsals, etc.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them opportunities for more grants and private funding.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the level of musicianship of each event- always prepared, professional and skilled to the highest level.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

hard working, humble, inventive, engaging, "big thinkers"!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

set the stage for a whole new level of learning and experience for classical music lovers across the US and the world. This group sets the bar high and is highly inventive- they could set the Chamber Music world on fire with their collaborative nature.

Ways to make it better...

there was a pool of volunteers helping weekly.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

time commitments and balancing the work load. Also, staying ahead of the grant-writing process, and exploring more avenues for private funding from current patrons and future patrons.

One thing I'd also say is that...

it is amazing that this group is celebrating 10 years of success when the arts world is suffering greatly from a funding standpoint. The strength of the income they currently receive is impressive!

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.

The Great!

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
