Come hear snippets of this witty opera buffa (comic opera) that stands the test of time.

GIVING TUESDAY

​Sometimes it seems like our country and our world are more divided than ever. Making and enjoying music is something that brings people together, regardless of nationality, language, age or religion. It unites us in a way that almost nothing else does. It's a part of our lives from the cradle to the grave and is a touchstone of deeply meaningful memories. Scientific research documents evidence of this phenomenon, but we experience it in our lives every day.

SD Baroque aims to further these goals of connecting people and keeping music alive through our free monthly Bach's Lunch concert series and our work with local children. We love providing live music that would otherwise be unavailable to people and we need your support in this endeavor. Financial contributions are especially needed for Bach's Lunch, which is in its second year.

Would you consider donating to SD Baroque? You can make a donation here on our website on our "About" page. Please use the "Donate" button on the bottom. Since we are a 501(c)(3), your donation is tax-deductible.

Financial assistance is vital, but that's not the only way to help us. We also need to find board members to help us in our growth as a professional organization and expand our mission. If you are willing to join us, please send an email to sdbaroque@gmail.com, send us a personal message on our Facebook page, or talk to one of us directly.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, for your past support and in advance for your future support. We can't do it without you.
