“These works might not exist without us. What a loss it would be if we stopped assisting in the creation of new works of art … It’s scary, it’s unpredictable, but it is our responsibility, and it is the legacy we leave for future audiences and musicians.”
Gisèle Becker interview, Fanfare, January 2013

Cantate strives to bring neglected masterworks to light; present choral classics to a modern audience with a fresh, historically informed twist; nurture young composing talent; and extend the choral repertoire with significant new works for chorus. Your support is critical to Cantate’s mission of making the greatest choral music accessible.

Ways You Can Support Cantate

Because only a small portion of our overall revenue comes from ticket sales, Cantate’s organizational success is only possible thanks to generous donations of time, talent and resources by our singers and patrons, donors and institutional supporters. Here are ways you can help:

  • Donate now by mail or online. Consider making a monthly, recurring gift to guarantee that Cantate can rely on sustainable funding throughout the season. Even $10 a month makes a genuine difference!
  • Support the Guenther Fund, a special way to sustain Cantate’s commitment to new choral commissions.
  • Ask your employer to match your gift to maximize your contribution to Cantate.
  • If you shop on Amazon, designate Cantate as your Amazon Smile recipient.
