We're in the Final Year!

The Ensemble Español has raised more than $430,000 toward the three-year, $500,000 goal set forth by The Caerus Foundation Growth Grant, which awarded $500,000 to the Ensemble in 2016 with the challenge to raise an additional $500,000 in three years. Once that goal is reached, the Ensemble will be rewarded with a final $500,000, for a total of $1.5 million! Olé!
