In 2003, eighteen Founding Sponsors pledged their personal support to the nascent Chesapeake Chamber Music Competition, thus providing the financial wherewithal for the first Competition to proceed. Since then, private contributions continue to provide for 80% of the budget. We are also grateful to the St. John Foundation and the Mahalick Foundation for their generous support.
