Unparalleled News: $10,000 Challenge


A long-time friend of The Society has posted a Membership Challenge for the 2018-2019 Season to match, dollar for dollar, all new and upgraded membership amounts up to $10,000. 

By joining or increasing your donation, we stand to raise an additional $20,000 this season.

If you love Baroque music, you have an extraordinary opportunity to make a special impact this year.  Our challenge differs from others by having no minimum threshold before we see a benefit.  Every new dollar contributed during this season will be matched 100%. 

Help us deliver our power-packed Season and future seasons:

  • Become a new member now—our Challenger will match your full membership amount.
  • Upgrade to a higher category if you are already a member—our Challenger will match the increment you add.

Either way, you double the impact of your contribution.

Membership in The Society has its rewards, from free and discounted concert tickets to members-only events, CDs of our concerts, and especially, the surety that you support the highest caliber music-making in the Berkshires, the Pioneer Valley and the Capitol Region.  Please help us achieve our challenge goal by joining or increasing your membership or by sending us a check.

Thank you for your help.  Your support means the world to us!
