We know that many businesses are facing hard times now, and wondering whether they will be able to keep their doors open when the stay-at-home orders are lifted. At this time of year, we would typically be reaching out about sponsoring the Sing & Play Festival, our annual celebration of music making for the Upper Valley with hundreds of participants and audience members. Originally scheduled for May 16, this year we will miss the chance to gather in person and make music by each other, for each other.
UVMC will offer the Sing & Play Festival this year in a quarantine-friendly model: recitals, sing-a-longs and jams, held in online formats,and a ‘play-on-your-porch’ moment for collective music-making away from screens.
If you can sponsor the event with a donation, of any amount, your support will help UVMC continue to provide connection through music to people throughout the Upper Valley. If you are not in a position to provide financial sponsorship, we only ask that you help us spread the word about this event. By becoming a sponsor (paid or in-kind publicity), you can be part of a good news, community celebration that is so desperately needed at this moment. UVMC can help get the word out to our families about how they can support your business at this time.
