    Support The Chorus!

    Music serves as an extraordinary testimony to the magnificence of the human spirit, and it is that indomitable spirit that we continue to celebrate and to share with you.

    The Cecilia Chorus of New York has a longstanding tradition of excellence, presenting the world's greatest choral music in performances worthy of the world's greatest concert halls. We are proud of our high standards and quality, but excellence has a price. Making great music requires a serious investment of time, energy, artistry … and money. We have no paid administration; all the work is done by our membership and volunteer supporters. Of course, we do what we can to maximize our income from dues, engagement fees, and ticket sales as well as to minimize our expenses through judicious planning and careful management. Nevertheless, our ambitious and challenging repertoire means that these various sources of income still cover only a fraction of our costs.

    To make great music, we need great friends. So to continue our tradition of excellence and to program more concerts for your pleasure, we need your support. Your generosity is the best way to let us know how much you like what we do, and to ensure that you will be hearing us perform for years to come.  You can do this by contributing to one or more of the funds below.

    Fund Descriptions:

    Annual Fund - Contributions are used to cover operating expenses associated with producing concerts in Carnegie Hall and other venues. There are various levels of giving with benefits described for each giving level. Your gift enables us to meet the significant costs of producing memorable musical experiences for you, our audience.

    Endowment Funds - Contributions provide long-term financial stability for the Chorus. Income from the Endowment Funds supplements the Annual Fund to cover concert production costs. Contributions may be directed to either or both the Second Century Fund and the David and Mildred Randolph Conductor's Chair.

    Educational Outreach - Since 2000, The Cecilia Chorus of New York has provided an educational outreach program that enables young people, seniors, and others throughout New York City to attend our Carnegie Hall performances. We target students and other individuals who might otherwise never have the opportunity to hear a live concert of classical choral music.
