Arts plus continuing support. 


In music, the “basso continuo” or simply “continuo” is played by a low-pitched instrument to reinforce the sound of the bass line and additional instruments playing full chords. It provides underlying support, sustaining the full harmony of the musical texture.

As in music, Continuo members provide a continuous “bass line” from which to build our organization, acting as true leaders. By giving $1,000 or more to Arts+, Continuo members provide the support we need to fulfill our vision of making outstanding arts education accessible to the entire community.

By becoming a Continuo member, you make a powerful statement about the importance of arts education in our community. We couldn't do it without you.
