Reach Our Audiences with Your Message

E-newsletter Ads

Businesses and individuals can reach CMS audiences with their promotional messages while supporting the chorus by advertising in the CMS e-newsletter that is emailed to 2,000 patrons throughout the year, according to the schedule below. The cost is just $50 per ad for companies/business and $35 per ad for individuals to place non-commercial ads, such as members of the chorus who want to share the news of their other performances outside of CMS.

Your ad should be limited to a headline followed by text of not more than 100 words. It can include your logo and a link to your website. To place an ad, please fill out this form and send your ad content to ads[at]chicagomastersingers[dot]org.

Program Book Advertising

Every fall, Chicago Master Singers (CMS) offers the opportunity to place ads in our concert programs. This is an effective way to help CMS raise funds for performances, while increasing your business’s visibility in the Chicago area. It is an excellent value. Your ad will be seen in the beautiful keepsake program books for all six concerts during the year, each with a potential audience of 700 people.

Ads are available in many sizes, and in black-and-white or color. Ads for the whole season can be purchased for as little as $150. The price points are listed on the program ad contract.

If you are a business owner or manager and your market is culturally active households in the Chicago area, purchasing a CMS program ad is a golden opportunity. Even if you don’t own a business, you can place an ad congratulating the chorus or Maestro Heatherington. CMS greatly appreciates your support.

For more information, please email us at info[at]chicagomastersingers[dot]org, or call 877-825-5267.

Corporate Sponsorships

Companies and individuals can support CMS at a higher level and receive an extensive package of marketing benefits by becoming corporate sponsors. Four exclusive sponsorship packages are available: one for the entire season and one for each concert. Sponsorship benefits include full-page color program ads, recognition in CMS news releases, marketing opportunities on the CMS website and in our marketing communications, and concert tickets. Get the details here.
