Giving Opportunities

Direct support from the community we serve is critical to fulfilling the Cappella Cantorum mission. As with most other community arts organizations, ticket sales to performances account for less than half of the actual costs to develop, rehearse and stage quality productions with professional orchestra and soloists.

It’s generous supporters like you who help make up the difference, keeping choral music alive and available to everyone in the Shoreline and Lower Connecticut River Valley area.

Cappella Cantorum is grateful for any and all contributions, and the opportunities for support are unlimited. Should you have any questions or wish to explore giving possibilities, please contact Carol Cherry at (860) 532-0454 or email
