Listener Music Fund Campaign | March 2014
The Listener Music Fund will allow us to bring great live music. The goal is to raise $15,000 in March, which will allow us to interrupt our Spring Fundraising Drive (April 3-12) to broadcast two live events: the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s Coffee Concert on Friday, April 4 featuring Leon Fleisher on piano and the Michigan Opera Theatre’s opening night of “A View From The Bridge” on Saturday, April 5. These are two great classical music experiences – and together we can share them with the entire community on WRCJ! Call 866-909-9725 or make your gift online today!
