Experience the joy of giving through the Gift of Song, the Cascade Chorale Association’s donation program that fuels our mission to make choral music accessible to the Central Oregon community.

Curious about why your donation matters when the Chorale is supported by COCC? While we are immensely grateful for COCC’s support in terms of our Director, James Knox, and rehearsal space for both the Cascade Chorale and Jazz Central, our concerts are a grand endeavor in terms of logistics and finances. They simply wouldn’t be possible in their current form without additional support from our incredible audiences. The exciting news is that, since 2012, our winter and spring concerts have been admission-free, thanks to generous donations that fund the majority of our operations – covering expenses such as hiring support musicians, renting venues, and engaging in community projects.

By making a tax-deductible donation or becoming a sponsor, you become a vital part of our ongoing commitment to fill Central Oregon with the beauty of choral music. We invite you to join us on this remarkable journey.

For more details on sponsorship opportunities and other ways to support the Cascade Chorale, please reach out to CCA President Marilyn Elliott. Your enthusiasm as an audience member and financial supporter means the world to the Cascade Chorale Association. Let’s keep the music playing together – donate today!

Be the Gift of Song is the Cascade Chorale’s scholarship program to support our community’s singers while they participate in Cascade Chorale programs. The Deschutes County Arts and Culture Grant Program generously provided kickstart funding for the program in 2022 by awarding $2500 to the Cascade Chorale Association. The timing for this award could not have been more perfect as the Chorale was just starting back with in-person rehearsals in the Fall of 2021 after COVID-19 closures beginning in March 2020 and was planning for ways to bring concerts back to the public. After the March 2022 and May 2022 concerts were cancelled due to COVID-19, the Singer’s scholarship helped offset the sting of cancelling the concerts by covering the enrollment costs for singers for the next term. This helped bring singers back who otherwise might have felt shortchanged by not getting to sing for the public the term before.
