Virtuoso Voices offers you three types of classical music fundraising messages: Produced Funder Spots, Un-hosted Funders and Straight-read Funder Spots. All feature classical music's leading performers and conductors. Use these Funder Spots during your classical music fundraising shifts to add variety, credibility and authority to your on-air fundraising sound. The Virtuoso Voices Funders Series includes Gil Shaham, Joshua Bell, Hilary Hahn, Evelyn Glennie, Stephen Hough, Richard Stoltzman, Yolanda Kondonassis, Andrew Litton, Leila Josefowicz, Roy Goodman, Murray Perahia, Emanuel Ax, Andre Watts, the Canadian Brass, Riccardo Muti, Menahem Pressler, Garrick Ohlsson, Marin Alsop, Sharon Isbin and many others.

Virtuoso Voices(tm) is also Public Radio's primary source for classical music fundraising messages.

Your station can customize the Produced Funder Spots to the specific sound and fundraising terminology of your station. These messages, from performers like Anne-Sophie Mutter, Sarah Chang and Jean-Yves Thibaudet, follow Public Radio's Best Practices for fundraising.

Please visit the fundraising page of our website for further examples and further information. www.virtuosovoices.org/fundraising. Or call David or Cindy at (703) 751-0342.
