What a year!
Some amazing things happened at Voices of Canton. We’d like to share with you a few of our recent exciting achievements:
A 71% increase in concert attendance
Last season VOCI attained a tremendous increase in the number of patrons attending our concerts. We get to share quality choral performances with more of our community.
Kicked off a new community engagement program: SingStark!
This new program, in partnership with the Canton Brewing Company, allows anyone to join us in the “joy of singing”, without audition or commitment. The 3rd Wednesday of every month we gather and learn two popular songs, record and video a performance and post them on YouTube. Check out a performance on our website at www.voicesofcanton.org.
Completed our 57th year of awarding scholarships to gifted voice students of Stark County.
This past season we awarded $4,500 to six talented young singers. Three scholarship recipients will be performing with us in our Holiday Concert Series. Concert information is available on our website.
When you make a gift to the arts you make a gift to the whole community.
Investment in the Voices of Canton by loyal patrons like you is a major factor in our success. Ticket revenue only covers approximately one third of programming costs. This fact makes your support vital to our organization. Your generosity provides the resources to realize achievements like those mentioned above.
For your convenience, we have enclosed a pledge card that includes some of our top priorities for funding. Every gift makes a difference. On behalf of all those who benefit from your commitment – from our chorus and the community affected by our programs – thank you for your past investment in VOCI and for your consideration as you make your end of year contributions.
