FoundatiOn Team

The FoundatiOn Team is On Ensemble’s core group of fans; the critical support group that makes new music and great performances possible. It is the financial support of the FoundatiOn Team that makes On Ensemble’s home concerts feasible. To show our appreciation each year we prepare special thank-you gifts, including limited edition CD singles, organic cotton t-shirts and other goodies that are available only to our FoundatiOn Team members.

Thank you FoundatiOn Team donors!

Thanks to the generous contributions of 102 donors, the FoundatiOn Team has reached our 2009 goal of $10,000! We had an inspiring spurt toward the end, along with some of our largest donations ever, pushing the grand total to $11,445.51!  We did it!  YOU did it!

Thank you, thank you, thank you everyone!

You made Works in Progress, and eight, brand-new taiko compositions possible!

You have also brought taiko to dozens of public school students! As promised, On Ensemble will be providing 10 hands-on taiko workshops, free of charge to Glassell Park Elementary School!  For the past few months, we have been working with the principle to structure the program to provide maximum benefit to the 4th and 5th grade classes.  On Ensemble is extremely excited to help bring more arts education to public schools.  Did you know that California elementary students receive 35% less music and visual arts instruction than the national average?!  Thank you to the FoundatiOn Team for helping us do something about it!

From me personally also… thank you, thank you.  I am extremely moved by the incredible support On Ensemble receives.  Multiple times during the fund drive I found myself choked up, totally inspired by your generosity.  It means the world to me that so many of you value On Ensemble’s music, our efforts in the taiko world, and our work in the larger community.  Thank you, thank you.

Thank you FoundatiOn Team donors!
