Ticket sales cover only a portion of concert costs, and we rely on grants and the financial support of our friends to make our performances possible. Help us enrich the cultural life of the Triangle community. Your tax-deductible gift will help us continue to offer high-quality performances of choral masterpieces with professional orchestra and soloists.
