The Intermission Orchestra at Berkeley is a student-run organization dedicated to building a community for film, game, and anime enthusiasts and sharing our passions with the Cal community and broader Bay area through our music and performances. As a group funded through private sources, we depend on the generosity of our donors.
We are grateful for the opportunities we have had so far to share our music and serve our communities. As we pass through Intermission’s 6th Anniversary this fall, we are working to book a larger venue for our end-of-year Spring concert to allow for more of the community to join us. Furthermore, to deliver a higher quality of performances at our concerts, we hope to upgrade our sound equipment to provide the best audio experience at our concerts, as well as upgrade our photography and video equipment to improve our content for the community to engage with us even when they can’t attend our performances in person. Beyond that, we hope to be able to support our members by subsidizing transportation costs to perform at venues anywhere throughout the Bay. We have even grander visions of one day being able to travel throughout California, the US, and even internationally to show our appreciation for anime, games, and film music that are a worldwide phenomenon. In order to continue growing, we ask for the generosity of individuals so we may perform at new venues, travel to entertain new fans, and upgrade our equipment. As the Intermission Orchestra continues to grow and spread our outreach around the world, we strive to use our performance opportunities and new equipment to teach members new skills and build their repertoire as musicians.
During this campaign, we really hope you can join us on this new chapter of the Intermission Orchestra’s journey! Through your support, we hope to raise at least $2,500: $700 to support new audio and video equipment for our performances, $1500 to book Hertz Hall and our usual church for our concerts, and $300 to subsidize costs for travelling. Will you make a tax-deductible donation today to support the Intermission Orchestra and help us lay the foundations for spreading Intermission’s reach throughout the Bay and beyond? Your donations will help make the dreams come true for a one-of-kind community of musicians, artists, audio engineers, photographers, videographers, and film, game, and anime enthusiasts!
