Message from the Artistic Director

Dear friends,

Will you help us to enrich the life of the University and its surrounding community? As the cultural ambassador of the University for the past twelve years, the Master Players Concert Series performances and educational programs presented each season are made possible by the generous support of dedicated friends like you who value the arts in our community.

A small sampling of featured artists in recent years includes the Juilliard String Quartet, the Cory Band (the #1 brass band in the world), and the Canadian Brass. Master Players also presents unique multimedia concert productions featuring original compositions, multi-disciplinary artistic collaborators (such as dancers, visual artists and writers), and world-class performers.

Master Players contributes to the underserved members of our community through free artist outreach performances and master classes. During the 2015-16 season, the Master Players ensemble-in-residence 6ixwire performed 15 free-of-charge outreach concerts in various schools, libraries, hospitals, and senior centers in the New Castle County area. Many of the audience members would not otherwise have been able to see a performance by world-class artists.

Please consider an annual spring gift to support Master Players' programming of world-class musicians. If you care about music education and live music presentations that will inspire, impress and inform the local community members, consider a gift that would fund student or family access to our Master Players artists. If there are loved ones or influencers you'd like to honor, consider honoring their name and legacy with the gift of music. By supporting the series at a level of $1,000 or more, you will also become a Delaware Diamonds Society member and receive member benefits. If you are already a member, thank you for supporting our great University and Master Players.

We hope you will consider a gift to support this local cultural treasure. The arts in our community will thrive thanks to devoted music lovers like you. Many thanks for your consideration.

In music,

Xiang Gao, Producing Artistic Director
