CASCADE CHORALE ASSOCIATION
The CASCADE CHORALE, a community chorus, is part of the music department at Central Oregon Community College. We currently have members who’ve sung with the chorus for decades, as well as members that have just recently graduated from high school. The Cascade Chorale has been under the direction of James Knox since 2004, and averages 75 talented singers.
The Cascade Chorale Association (“CCA”) is a 501(c)3 organization which provides financial and organizational support to Cascade Chorale. While COCC provides invaluable support in terms of a rehearsal space and our amazing director, James Knox, the CCA provides financial support for concert planning and execution, our accompanist and other musicians, programs, and advertising.
CCA’s mission is to make choral music accessible to everyone in the Central Oregon community. Our concerts are an enormous logistical and financial undertaking but, despite the cost of hiring support musicians, renting venues, and community projects, in 2012 we stopped charging admission to our concert-goers. We now rely solely on donations to fund most of our operations. Your tax deductible donation or sponsorship will help us to continue to bring beautiful choral music to Central Oregon. Please consider giving us your support today. For more information on Sponsorship opportunities and other ways to support the Cascade Chorale, please contact CCA President Marilyn Elliott. The Cascade Chorale Association appreciates your attendance and financial support.
