Chair Sponsorship Drive

Help us 'cover' our chairs! 

We are rolling out a program this fall to increase awareness about our Chair Sponsorship Program. Sponsoring a chair offers an individual or business to 'name' the chair, after themselves, a business, in memory of someone special, etc.  The named chair will be shown in the program insert, and the chair sponsor will be announced from the stage.  Sponsoring a chair is a great way for families, extended families and businesses to show their support for CVYS. Funds from chair sponsorship go towards supporting the CVYS program as a whole, and specifically support the scquisition of new sheet music and compensation for music educational staff.  The giving levels for chair sponsorship are as follows:

Please consider helping us to find chair sponsors for CVYS. You can make contact with individuals and businesses yourself or send us your referrals and we will reach out to them on your behalf.

For every referral you make, we will place your name in a raffle to receive free tickets to attend a Minnesota Orchestra Performance with the CVYS when they go on their Spring Symphony Tour.  Click here to fill out the referral form.

Thanks for helping us to "cover our chairs"! At the December concert we will choose a winning name, and hopefully you will see a difference on stage with some newly "covered" chairs!
