Dear Friend:

The Ohio Valley Music Guild is gearing up for our 2021 season. As the world continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and more things open, the OVMG Board members are conducting our annual Sponsorship Drive. During the pandemic, the Music Guild (with the support of its Members and Sponsors) brought you a virtual concert by Pittsburgh’s Ashley Marina (which you can watch on our YouTube channel), continued to support the Grand Theater Project, and awarded our annual music scholarship to Mollie Vonderhaar from Xavier University. As we begin to plan events and other programs, your support is needed more than ever.

For more than 16 years, the Ohio Valley Music Guild has been bringing quality, cultural entertainment to the area, with the support and generosity of sponsors like you. We have brought more than 50 performances to the Ohio Valley in the past including Act II of the Nutcracker Ballet by the Pittsburgh Ballet performers, a swing band performance including dance instructors; opera, Broadway, and jazz singers and ensembles; flamenco dancers, a steel drum orchestra and local talent presented by the Sycamore Center. For the past ten years, with your support and commitment, we have been able to award scholarships to rising sophomore and above college students who have a local connection and who have declared to be in a music-related major. We are also proud to support the Grand Theatre Renovation Project.

Our Sponsorship levels for 2021 are 1/3 Page Ad Sponsor ($75), a 1/2 Page Ad Sponsor ($125), and a Full Page Ad Sponsor ($200). Each level includes its noted ad size in our event programs, a post per event mentioning your support on our Social Media, a mention on each event’s post on our website, and recognition and a backlink on our website. In addition, we will add your company as a Courtesy Music Guild member, ensuring you receive all our mailings (including invitations to our events). In addition, we will provide one (1) complimentary ticket (once; NOT per event) for our 1/2 Page Ad Sponsors and two (2) complimentary tickets (once; NOT per event) for our Full Page Ad Sponsors. Please see below for an example program. Whatever level you choose is greatly appreciated.

As a commitment to our community involvement, we are once again planning to partner with Indian Creek High School and David Moffat’s production students to design and publish our programs. We are looking forward to seeing their creativity and giving them a learning opportunity to publish for the general public.

Please see the form below for you to complete and send back to us as soon as possible. For the first time, you may also purchase online.

We appreciate your time, and we look forward to your support. Please let us know if there any other ways in which you would like to support our organization.
