It’s a beautiful summer evening in Vermont, and music lovers are heading inside. It’s the 2022 Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival at the Elley-Long Music Center in Colchester, Vermont, and discerning audiences have been looking forward to this experience all year long.

Who would choose to spend an evening inside on such a lovely night? The Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival’s audiences most certainly would! The Elley-Long Music Center at Saint Michael’s College is light and airy – it scarcely feels like coming inside. And the hall’s good looks are coupled with superior acoustics – something that our audiences care greatly about.

You are gathered with friends and clients to listen to some of the most exciting chamber musicians performing today. These are artists who regularly play in the world’s most prestigious venues, and perform as soloists with the world’s great orchestras. And yet they cherish the opportunity to come to Vermont and to interact with the Festival’s audiences and aspiring young musicians.

Before the concert you can host a special private dinner or reception in the spacious Orchestra Rehearsal Room. We will make sure to allow time for your guests to enjoy a free pre-concert talk with the Festival’s composer-in-residence. Or help us to round off a wonderful evening by sponsoring an audience reception – a unique opportunity to share some refreshments and conversation with audience members and musicians alike.

The Elley-Long Music Center’s hall seats 350 people, and we expect to sell out the Summer Concert Series. Our beautiful souvenir program, featuring your ad, is distributed to everyone who attends Festival events – approximately 1400 music lovers each summer. Your sponsorship is also listed on the program page and on our website, and we announce your support from the stage.

When you lend your corporate support the Festival you join a visionary and community-minded group of business leaders in providing vital financial support not only for the concert programming but also for a range of community engagement.

To learn more about becoming a corporate sponsor please contact Robert Whipple by email or by phone at (802) 846-2175.

We look forward to welcoming you!
