Support Overview

“I had never heard choral music before, but when I heard these amazing sounds of harmony at the Hallelujah Project concert, a lightbulb went on inside of me. I thought – this is it! I MUST find a way to be a part of it.”

– Sese Ntem, member 


The performing arts have long been dependent on the generosity of patrons, sponsors and business leaders to provide financial support that cannot be generated by concert ticket sales alone.

The Choral Society is no different. We are a registered 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, and ticket sales provide only a fraction of our expenses. Additional income generated by grants, planned giving, and donations, at every giving level, helps cover the costs for a season that usually includes several concerts. Won’t you join us?

We are deeply grateful to all of our donors for their generosity through annual gift giving, attending our concerts and Gala, or joining one of our sponsorship programs. 

We believe you recognize the value of live performance and the ability of choral music to heal, uplift, and unite us in a shared experience. Such is the power of many voices lifted in song.


Thank you sincerely for keeping choral music alive.

Corporate Giving
