The rich tapestry of AFCM performances at the Leo Rich stage and our extensive community engagement initiatives stand as a testament to our unwavering commitment to bringing the world’s finest chamber music to Tucson and Arizona. The 2022–2023 season served as a robust foundation for the ongoing celebrations marking AFCM’s 75th season!
The inspiring roster of donors featured in this report provides a clear understanding of how and why AFCM thrives. It is you—our dedicated audience members and generous donors—who breathe life into AFCM, infusing it with artistic vibrancy in its 75th season. Your enduring passion and support, both as audience members and contributors, are nothing short of a miracle that sustains our mission today and fuels our artistic creativity for the years ahead.
There is remarkable news to share as we enter our Annual Fund campaign this year. An anonymous donor has generously pledged up to $50,000 in matching funds for our Annual Fund drive, doubling the impact of your contributions. Every dollar you donate will be matched through December 31, ensuring that your support goes twice as far in sustaining and enhancing our mission. Please help us take advantage of this opportunity this year and send your gift prior to December 31.
In addition, this year’s celebrations are particularly poignant as we remember the late Jean-Paul Bierny. Jean-Paul’s dedication and passion for chamber music were the cornerstones of AFCM’s success. His visionary leadership guided us for decades, and his commitment to our mission raised AFCM to new heights. In his honor, AFCM’s Board has dedicated the entire 2023-2024 season to Jean-Paul, celebrating his legacy and contributions to chamber music.
Your generosity makes a profound difference, and AFCM is worth every ounce of it. Join us in shaping the future of chamber music in our community and ensuring that the magic of music endures.
With deep gratitude, your Arizona Friends of Chamber Music.
