Sponsors

Dear Future Sponsor, 

As the name implies, Songs of Life is a celebration of life; serving as a call for action to ordinary people to collectively perform extraordinary feats of compassion. The Festival commemorates the rescue of 49,000 Bulgarian Jews during the Holocaust – a rescue that occurred neither by military might nor by directives from powerful leaders, but through the voices of ordinary citizens who refused to be silent. The people of Bulgaria would neither stand idle nor remain silent in the face of evil. The chorus of the Bulgarian people literally became songs of life – voices that resonated across the country to save the lives of tens of thousands.

To date, Varna International, a South Carolina company, has brought Songs of Life to some of the most prominent venues in the world – both domestic and international. In 2013, we are delighted to bring Songs of Life home to South Carolina for the very first time. We will present our critically acclaimed custom-commissioned oratorio, A Melancholy Beauty.

The performances will be held on Saturday, November 2, at the Charleston Music Hall in Charleston and on Sunday, November 3, at the Koger Center for the Arts in Columbia.

We are excited to share that The Honorable Elena Poptodorova, the ambassador from the Republic of Bulgaria to the United States, will be attending the performances and the VIP reception.

Whether you or your organization is seeking to support the arts, or seeking to gain recognition and visibility at our highly publicized event, we welcome the opportunity to work with you.

As a sponsor, your organization will have the opportunity to stand out before an international audience. When you choose one of our sponsor packages, you gain the following benefits:

– Raise the profile of your organization before an international and local audience through premier publicity and recognition benefits as set forth in the enclosed sponsorship schedule;

– Receive recognition with audiences at some of South Carolina’s most prestigious concert venues;

– Have the opportunity to include an advertisement in our concert program booklets;

– Strengthen your organization’s association with the performing arts while supporting a top- quality music event;

– Associate your organization with an inspiring message;

– Have the opportunity to meet with world-class artists, diplomats, and community leaders during our VIP receptions.

We would be delighted to meet with you to discuss our sponsorship levels and possibilities and to partner with you in the Songs of Life Festival in South Carolina.
Sincerely,

Kalin-sign
