The Austin Children's Choir strives to provide the children of Austin and surrounding communities with a rewarding music program that gives them the opportunity to learn and perform outstanding choral music. Our mission is to make our program accessible to all children, no matter their musical experience or socioeconomic status. We accept all singers who audition into our program. Singers in The Austin Children's Choir range from ages 6 to 18 with a variety of musical backgrounds and experiences. Our singers participate in a rigorous learning experience, with an emphasis in fun and difficult repertoire, music literacy, and exciting performance opportunities. We strive to provide the best possible music education program for the singers of Austin, Texas.
Impact StatementThe Austin Children's Choir supporters help provide scholarships and music for all students involved in the choir. We have nearly half of our students on a form of scholarship or tuition assistance to ensure that no student is turned away from our program. General tuition only covers a small portion of the annual needs of The Austin Children's Choir, so supporters and donors are vital to the continued success of the oldest children's chorus in Austin, Texas.
Needs StatementThis year, our goal is to fully fund our students on scholarship and provide each student with their music for the season. This amounts to $5,000 in needed donations for the remainder of the 2017-2018 season. The choir has continued to grow by nearly 25% annually and we look forward to the opportunity to provide more learning opportunities through our scholarship program in the future.
