American Friends of Monteverdi
Become an American Friend of Monteverdi and guarantee priority booking for our sell-out own promotion concerts.
The American Friends of the Monteverdi Choir and Orchestra, Inc was established in 1999 as a US non-profit organization, tax-exempt under sections 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal revenue Code, for the principal purpose to financially support Monteverdi ensembles' concert tours and related activities in the United States.
“When I founded the Monteverdi Choir in 1964, I embarked on a journey to explore the wonderful sounds of past eras, discovering and rediscovering the great repertoire of the last four centuries. This quest has featured many highlights, bringing to light many rarely heard works and leading in some instances to the first performance of certain works in modern times.
Touring has always represented a major aspect of the Monteverdi ensembles’ work and we have performed throughout Europe, the US and the Far East. All this was undertaken without any significant public funding. Our success is largely due to the generosity of individuals, corporate supporters and charitable trusts. However, in today’s uncertain economic climate, touring is becoming more and more difficult. I therefore urge you to support us by joining the American Friends of the Monteverdi Choir and Orchestra and play your part to ensure we can continue to perform live concerts in the USA.”
