PREMIER MARKETING THROUGH 16th NOTE SOCIETY

WHERE BUSINESS AND
COMMUNITY INTERSECT

The 16th Note Society offers an opportunity for civic-minded businesses and individuals to support the Colorado Springs Conservatory and at the same time, benefit from enhanced marketing visibility for their product or service. The Society is comprised of 16 elite, visionary, and successful organizations and individuals that underwrite all Conservatory community outreach projects and performances. These presentations occur almost daily – hundreds each year – and range from performances at public festivals in front of thousands, to presentations for fellow non-profits, or private affairs for high-profile constituents. From full-length stage productions to improvisational vignettes, from large ensembles to individual performances by alumni, students, and faculty. CSC performance projects are memorable and meaningful; a source of pride for the entire community.

We at Penrose believe in a holistic approach to health and this includes a healthy soul- one that can express itself through the arts and creativity. Our partnership and support of the Colorado Springs Conservatory as a 16th Note Society member exemplifies that belief system. The fact that we can support a program for children and the arts through their formative years as profound as the Conservatory’s ensures a solid and transformative investment in long term health.”

– Margaret Sabin, Penrose-St. Francis Health Services

MARKETING OUT OF THE BOX

There are only 16 product-exclusive members in the prestigious 16th Note Society; each ensured marketing exposure, quality endorsement, and community-wide recognition. They are the backbone of the CSC outreach program that touches thousands across the region and nation.
