YOUR GENEROSITY KEEPS US SINGING!
Registered Charitable # 89806 0264 RR0001
Donors support the Ottawa Choral Society in four essential ways:
With your assistance we stage interesting and entertaining concerts in partnership with some of the best talent in Canadian music. Patron ticket revenue never covers the full cost of staging our concerts and venue rental fees combined with the cost of musical accompaniment, orchestras and soloists are considerable.
Attracting great choristers and establishing the appropriate mentorship and vocal development programs for our singers is an important part of our annual budget. We engage a full-time music director who brings great experience and talent to the development of the choir.
Keeping choral music relevant as a dynamic and evolving cultural and artistic tradition is a priority of the Society. To do this we provide financial support to composers to produce new choral compositions which can be performed by the choir.
The Society makes funding available to defray costs for young choristers who join the choir, and establishes bursaries through our New Discoveries Program.
Many thanks to all the donors and patrons keeping choral music alive and relevant in Ottawa by supporting the Ottawa Choral Society.
