The strength of the Pro Musica Youth Chorus is not just the quality of its conductors or the energy and dedication of the young singers. The strength and longevity also comes from our donors and volunteers. The donors to the PMYC demonstrate that music and the arts have value in children’s lives. Gifts made to the PMYC allow the chorus to continue in the community and for youth that may not otherwise have access to such a high level of music education and performance experience.
As a community-based, non-profit arts organization, we work to provide this experience for all singers regardless of income. Your gift to the PMYC allows the chorus to:
Businesses are encouraged to sponsor events hosted by the PMYC such as concerts or the annual Choral Workshop. In return, the corporate sponsor will receive advertising in the chorus program, on the event poster, and verbal acknowledgment at the event itself. Depending on the level of sponsorship, the business can also receive complimentary tickets and CDs. Sponsors at the Maestro level can also elect to have an ensemble perform at a private event of their choosing.
The PMYC provides tuition assistance to any singer in demonstrated financial need. Contributions allow the chorus to support talented and eager singers while maintaining a level of tuition comparable to music lessons or participation in sports programs.
The PMYC commissions new work by Midwestern composers. This ongoing commitment, in addition to contributing to the body of choral works suited to young voices, has brought talented artists to instruct and inspire our young singers.
The PMYC looks to strengthen bonds of community within and beyond the Chorus organization. Singers travel to share performances with audiences that cannot come to us.
Cash gift: A gift of any amount is gratefully received. Funds are applied as needed, to existing programs and to programs under development.
