“No personal significance or insignificance can spare one
or another of us. The fiery trial
through which we pass will light us down in honor or dishonor, to the latest
generation. We – even we here – hold the
power and bear the responsibility.”
As I spoke these
inspirational words of Abraham Lincoln and those of Martin Luther King, I felt
the audience was with me. Attentive
quiet is one of the greatest responses an audience can give to an artist. They were engaged in a moment that was “truly
moving”, personal and yet shared. This
is what the performing arts can provide in a way that other mediums cannot.
Supporters, like you,
have enabled the Elmhurst Symphony to provide these types of experiences for 55
years. With your support, the Symphony
can continue presenting exhilarating performances. These concerts come at a cost however - the
cost of a lot of work (many hands work very hard to help present these
outstanding concerts) and dollars (about 30% of the cost of the concerts
is covered by ticket revenue).
Now, while you still
have the famous words of Lincoln and King ringing in your ears – please make a
generous donation to the Elmhurst Symphony.
