Campanella Receives Young Singers Foundation Grant02/18/2015
The Campanella Children’s Choir received a $500 grant from the Young Singers Foundation.
The grant will be used to help the choir attend this year’s Festival of Gold. The annual event brings together choirs from all over United States. Each choir gets one-on-one coaching and advice from renowned adjudicators and conductors. The choirs also get to perform at some of the most prestigious venues in the country. You can read about our experience at last year’s festival here.
The Young SingersFoundation is a non-profit organization that works to help kids and teenagers participate in music programs. They believe that music is a vital part of education, allowing them to develop creativity, increase their self-worth and learn self-discipline and teamwork. They set up grants and a scholarship to give the talented kids opportunities to get musical education they would otherwise never get. Every year, hundreds of organizations from all across United States applied, but we’re among the lucky ones to get it. We are proud and honored to be able to say that.
While the grant will go a long way toward helping us attend the Festival of Gold, it won’t cover everything. Join Young Singers Foundation in supporting Campanella’s journey to the festival.
