“Sharing BCF brought new meaning to my participation.”

"Singing with BCF is always a memorable experience,” says Joan Lam, an alto from California. “Sharing the excitement of the music making by sponsoring a young scholar, Becky Weinstein, brought new meaning to my participation. A student at New York University, she has been singing with the Berkshire Children’s Chorus and Coda since third grade. It was indeed a pleasure to sing the Brahms German Requiem with her.”

“Being sponsored was the best thing that could have happened to me.”

"As infatuated with music as I am, the BCF has become a summertime necessity,” says Becky Weinstein, an alto from Massachusetts. “As a young person, money doesn’t come easily for me. Being sponsored was the best thing that could have happened to me. Attending the festival and spending time with Joan was such a great experience. The music was amazing, the company was terrific, and the knowledge that I gained was unparalleled. I really hope that more young, motivated, musical people like me can be part of BCF because of the generosity of people like Joan."
