Support

Join our Subscription Program by making a single, annual contribution to sustain the ensemble through the 2017–2018 season. With your gift, you’ll be giving us the assurance and stability to build and plan on a year-long scale instead of just tracking our income on a concert-to-concert basis. Your subscription has the added benefit of making our organization more attractive to potential grantors.

As a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and proud members of the Philadelphia arts community, we rely on our friends and contributors to make our work possible. Our commitment to offering ticketless concerts means our continued success is possible through your donations alone.

As our organization matures, so do its wants and needs. Our pursuit of additional revenue over the coming years will allow us to realize some of our bigger goals:

  • Commissioning new compositions for our chorus.
  • Coordinating collaborative concerts with like-minded ensembles.
  • Staging workshops for the development of our singers and conductors.
  • Pursuing special projects in educational outreach or musicological research.

For a gift of $60, you receive a Subscriber Button that entitles you to pass proudly by our donation table at any concert during the 2017–2018 season.

Though small in stature, wrens are instantly recognizable–even on our logo–by their loud and complex melodies.

For a gift of $180, you get two Subscriber Buttons and two tickets to our Monday, May 14, 2018 open rehearsal and reception. Get to know the singers and the choir’s rehearsal process!

Known for their constant song, nightingales have been celebrated by generations of composers.

Crane Subscription — $300

For a gift of $300, you get two Subscriber Buttons, two tickets to our May 14, 2018 open rehearsal and reception, reserved seating for two at any concerts you attend.

  1. I heard the quartet at the memorial service for Tricia Rock (mother of Jordan.) It was exquisite! I returned home and searched for more on Jordan and the Chestnut Street Singers. Your history, biographical information and most important your music are a wonder. I retired last spring after teaching for 46 years. I am sharing your website with some of my former colleagues in hope that they will share your music with their students. I am so proud of Jordan and Caroline for what they shared with us last Sunday.

    • Thanks, Marion! Music is such an important part of our lives that it’s a joy to be able to share it with our families and loved ones.

    • Hi Ginny,

      Thanks so much for your contribution, and sorry for the lack of clarity on our part about getting your buttons out to you! For everyone who subscribes before the first concert, we’ll have your buttons ready with your name on them at the donation table at the first concert. We look forward to seeing you there!

      Thanks again,
      Jordan
