ABOUT   LeFestival.org and the Silicon Valley Gives day.

 

We believe that you can help LeFestival become a permanent Bay Area musical scene.

 

THE BUDGET: Why do we fund raise? Because like all art features, the beginnings are difficult and the ticket sales are not enough to cover the costs. Where your money will go:

Our goals are:

1. Present the great masterpieces of French music to the San Francisco Bay Area public

2. Present performances of exceptional quality by the finest musicians and singers in the San Francisco Bay Area

3. Continue presenting this festival as an annual highlight of musical life in the San Francisco/San Jose Bay Area

To present musicians of such high artistic attainment in public concerts, ticket sales are not sufficient to cover costs. This festival can be sustained only with the help of enthusiastic and generous supporters. A festival of such high artistic quality requires a considerable sum of money to finance the artists, the venue and the publicity campaign.

Both big and small, your contributions will help create a stable financial environment for this festival.
