GiveBIG Seattle is a one-day online giving event culminating on May 10th to raise funds for nonprofit organizations serving Greater Seattle.
In the past we have asked you for donations to fund productions such as Carmina Burana, the 2016 opening concert at the wonderful new Vashon Center for the Arts. On April 29th and 30th we will once again fill the hall with singers, soloists and orchestra as we present Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass and Kaplan's Song of Songs.
The Katherine L White Hall at Vashon Center for the Arts provides a generously sized stage that will accommodate both a large chorus and a large orchestra in an acoustically wonderful building. This exciting venue enables us to expand our repertoire to include many of the masterworks in the Choral Canon. We have already scheduled Honegger's Une Cantate de Noël and Averitt's "Away to the Skies" this December. These exciting works will attract singers and audience alike. But they require larger orchestras than we have worked with previously.
As a non-profit organization, our mission is to provide opportunity for choral singing in the community both for singers and for audiences. We ask our singers to pay minimal dues and offer scholarships to those for whom this would be a hardship. Concert ticket sales are our other main source of income. When we have extraordinary concert expenses such as funding for orchestras, we rely on donations. Generosity from loyal donors allows us to maintain our low ticket prices and offer special discounts to seniors and students.
We hope YOU can help us replenish our Orchestra Fund. To make it easier this year, donations will be accepted from April 27th through May 10th. Schedule YOURS anytime and it will be processed on Give Big Day (May 10th). To donate, click the DONATE button above. That will take you directly to our profile page on the Seattle Foundation Give Big site. You can schedule your donation, and while you’re there make donations to other Island causes.
Thanks for your help.
Why your donation matters
Vashon Islanders contribute generously to many arts organizations that offer local, outstanding artistic experiences. This includes Vashon Island Chorale! Your donations and financial support to the Chorale are gratefully welcomed and help ensure the future of the Chorale. From providing scholarships to Chorale members who might otherwise be unable to afford to participate, to helping fund the operational costs of a single concert, your contribution is important.
As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, all donations to Vashon Island Chorale are tax deductible. Throughout our twenty-five-year history, and as we continue to evolve and grow, Vashon Island Chorale serves as an important community amenity; an outlet for the talents of local singers; and an opportunity for our community to enjoy the art of choral singing.
