Many of you will have attended their previous concert in Goa in January 2012, so you’ll know this is going to be a wonderful concert!
For those who didn’t, here’s a review of that concert:
“This is the stuff of legend, and those who gave her concert a miss are immeasurably the poorer for it.”
So get your passes quickly! This concert will probably get sold out, as it deserves to.
The donation passes to ProMusica concerts will henceforth be priced at Rs. 150 each.
Just a few words on the logistics of organising such concerts:
It takes a lot of co-ordination, correspondence and planning to bring such high-calibre concerts to the Goan public. One has to be in constant touch with the artistes and with other organisers and impresarios in other parts of the country also planning the artistes’ concert tour.
The average cost per concert (which includes flights, hotel stay, performance fees, concert hall booking fees, and printing costs for flyers and donation passes) can range from Rs. 60,000 to 80,000.
So for these concerts to be offered at Rs. 150 per donation pass is a real bargain, and very good value for money. If one were to hear the same performer in Wigmore Hall London or in Carnegie Hall New York, one could easily be paying 10 or 20 times as much.
It is very hard to even recover the organising costs, and one needs to do this to keep on bringing such concerts to the Goan public in the future.
So please do support these concerts by coming yourselves, with all your friends and family and acquaintances. Spread the word by forwarding this email to your mailing list.
Print off our concert posters and put them up in your commercial establishments, or your local church or other places where they will be noticed.
Even if you are not able to come, please buy up our donation passes or make a contribution to help us defray costs of organising these really high-calibre events.
It is very important that our youth and the rest of us keep getting exposed to music of the highest quality, to inspire us, to aspire to play like them ourselves, and also to nourish those of us who just listen.
