Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network and its Annapolis-based partner, Vantage Wealth Management, Inc., recently became a sponsor of the 27th season of Chesapeake Chamber Music (CCM). Chesapeake Chamber Music is a non-profit organization which sponsors the annual Chesapeake Chamber Music Festival (June 3 – 17, 2012), the biennial Chesapeake Chamber Music Competition, (March 2014), and the annual Jazz on the Chesapeake Festival over Labor Day weekend.
Josh Mazer, CFP®, Managing Principal of Vantage Wealth Management, comments, “As a musician my whole life, and now providing classical musical training for my three children, I appreciate the mission of Chesapeake Chamber Music to bring world-class chamber music to a growing audience of young and old on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. My years cruising Eastern Shore waterways, as well as my longstanding involvement as a safety/committee boat with Annapolis Rowing Club’s Annual Wye Island Regatta, have helped me to appreciate the beauty of the region.” He adds, “Vantage Wealth Management is excited to let Eastern Shore residents know about our services and look forward to future opportunities to be involved with outstanding regional events such as those hosted each year by Chesapeake Chamber Music.”
According to Chloe L. Pitard, president of the Board of Directors for Chesapeake Chamber Music, “We appreciate the support of companies like Vantage Wealth Management as they enable us to offer affordable tickets to the CCM Festival each June, free concerts in area schools, and YouthReach, the program of free violin instruction for students in local elementary schools.”
Chesapeake Chamber Music’s YouthReach Program offers elementary school children in Talbot and Dorchester counties a beginning string music experience called First Strings, with a more advanced string music experience called Presto! now under development. The CCM YouthReach Program also supports concerts for elementary school children in the area.
