Why Donate

Tuition and tickets sales do not cover the cost of our programs. In fact, tuition and ticket sales income is only 48% of what it costs to educate our young singers and bring music to performance. As a not-for-profit arts organization, we depend on the generous contributions of members and supporters to our Annual Fund each season. Chorus Angelicus and Gaudeamus relies on contributions from businesses, foundations, grants, and individuals to provide our singers and our community with high quality music education and performances. We need to raise over $76,000 each year from contributions and grants – that’s about $1270 per student – in order to make budget.

Your donation allows us to continue on our mission to promote beauty and human enrichment for people of all ages through instruction in, and performance of, choral music. Furthermore, your investment helps train outstanding young performers, and helps them to grow – both as musicians and as responsible, caring young adults.
