Arts plus continuous support.


In music, the “basso continuo” or simply “CONTINUO” is a part given to a low-pitched instrument, such as a keyboard or cello that plays a bass line with the chords that accompany a melody. It provides continuous support in sustaining the full harmony of the musical piece.

At Arts+, CONTINUO is our Leadership Giving circle for supporters who give $1,000 and up. As in music, Continuo members are philanthropic leaders who provide a continuous “bass line” of support that helps us provide an accessible outstanding arts education to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community.
