This fundraiser is for Crescent Concerts, a non-profit serving the community in and around Plainfield, NJ. Begun in 1980 as a modest concert series, Crescent Concerts has matured into a multi-disciplinary presentation of vocal, instrumental, choral and orchestral music bringing high quality musical events to the residents of the City of Plainfield, NJ and surrounding communities. Programming for the series is diverse, and ranges through solo voice and instrumental performances, chamber groups, bell choirs, to full choral/orchestral spectaculars.
Crescent Concerts schedule generally includes concerts by the Crescent Choral Society, a volunteer choir whose membership is open to the community (often accompanied by professional orchestra), the Crescent Singers, a smaller hand-picked chorus that typically sings a cappella, and also outside professional and amateur groups and solo artists. Of particular note, is the annual Showcase for Exceptional Young Artists, featuring talented local young musicians, age 16 and under, chosen by competitive audition.
Your donation will help us continue to provide high quality music for the community, and to promote the education of young emerging artists. Funds will be used to help pay for costs associated with facilities, conductors, educators instrumentalists and other staff who are hired to support Crescent Concerts. Our goal to raise $5000 in the first two quarters of 2018 is extremely important to keep this vital program running. Thank-you!
