We Need Your Help!

This show will feature a different avant-garde evening event on four of the show weekends— including art performers, lecturers, musicians, actor-read poetry and even a vintage film screening. As you may certainly imagine, this exhibition is highly involved with more than 50 people so the budget for the entire six weeks is sizable enough to warrant a bit of monetary assistance in order to keep the expenses under control while offering each performer payment for their talent and time.

We are reaching out to you to ask if you would be one of our donors for this truly unique experience.

Attached as a PDF is the sponsorship card, which can by printed and sent in with your donation made payable to The Brasiles Ensemble and sent to our POBox.
