BENEFITING: ATLANTA MASTER CHORALE INC
EVENT DATE: Mar 08, 2017
They picked us! Out of thousands of community choirs in America, and nearly 300 submissions to perform at the convention, Atlanta Master Chorale has been chosen to represent the best of community music in the country!
Now, we need your help to represent Atlanta at the National ACDA conference in Minneapolis in March 2017. Every dollar raised helps pay travel and lodging for our volunteer singers to represent our city and region at this remarkable convention of thousands of choir nerds and musicians from around the country!
Our singers, staff, and board have always been remarkably proud of the level of excellence we share with our Atlanta community; now we will take that choral artistry to the national stage in front of thousands of choral directors from around the country.
Atlanta Master Chorale is dedicated to both artistic excellence and fiscal responsibility. Our staff and board have ensured we have ended the past 5 consecutive seasons in a positive financial position (a rare feat for an arts non-profit after the financial crisis), and we are thrilled to have strategic cash reserves built up to help underwrite some of the costs for our volunteer singers to enjoy this rare performance experience. Through careful planning and dreaming, we have a portion of the funds necessary to take the choir on the (icy!) road to Minneapolis next March, but we need your help to cross the finish line!
We hope you will join our board and many loyal patrons in supporting this effort as we pay partial and full scholarships for our dedicated singers to travel to Minneapolis for this great opportunity.
About our singers: Among the 55 volunteer singers in the Atlanta Master Chorale are: public and private school teachers, graduate students, business executives, full-time parents, professors, attorneys, scientists and church musicians, just to name a few professions! Together, our combined musical influence reaches an estimated 14,000 people inside and outside of Atlanta each week in classrooms, private music studios, houses of worship, and other community ensembles. Every dollar donated to this effort will directly off-set travel and lodging expenses for our award-winning singers to represent Atlanta, Georgia, and the Southeast at this national conference.
Thank you for your generosity, and we hope to see you at our concerts very soon!
