Select a sponsorship opportunity that best reflects your company’s mission and objectives.
1) Festival Sponsorship:
Sponsor DoCha’s festival and play an important part in creating unique chamber music-based experiences involving free world-class performances, food, drinks, engaging visual art, and a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Last year’s festival events were filled beyond capacity and organizers had to turn away overflow guests. The festival will be held at downtown Champaign’s beautiful and historic Orpheum Theatre. Deepen your connection to a large community of vibrant, diverse, and dynamic arts appreciators of all ages by sponsoring the festival.
2) Young People’s Series Sponsorship:
DoCha will reach hundreds of youths in Champaign County by presenting free programs for young people and families in partnership with the Orpheum Children’s Science Museum. DoCha and the Orpheum will offer engaging, fun, and educational chamber music presentations for school children through organized school field-trips as well as open-to-the-public family programs over the weekend.
3) Artist Sponsorship:
Underwrite the participation of one of our artists. Your sponsorship will ensure that DoCha can continue to invite the world’s most in-demand and exciting musicians to participate in free performances for Champaign audiences! You will be matched with one of our exciting virtuoso artists and acknowledged in our promotional materials as this artist’s sponsor. You and your guests will be invited backstage to meet the artist you sponsor and to the after-party event following that artist’s performance.
4) Special Event Sponsorship:
Sponsor a special fundraiser event, after-party, or private reception.
