2018-19 Annual Fund

Our Annual Fund helps Encompass close the gap between grants and ticket sales and our operating expenses. It enables Encompass to continue to present our annual educational and outreach program, such as PARADIGM SHIFTS: MUSIC AND FILM FESTIVAL, that bridges indigenous cultures, women's wisdom, and the global environmental movement through live music and independent film. PARADIGM SHIFTS has partnered with Union Theological Seminary, and their Center for Earth Ethics, and has also performed at the Baruch Performing Arts Center. Our Annual Fund significantly supports the Encompass adventurous new music theatre programs as well as our concerts and musical events, that provide opportunities for new composers, singers, and musicians.
