There are some myths we want to dispel:
You may wonder why we are asking for money again, and maybe you have even asked yourself some of these questions:
Myth: "People buy tickets - that covers expenses, right?"
Fact: Even with full houses, ticket revenue covers less than 20% of expenses.
Myth: "Wealthy donors take care of contributions – my thirty-seven bucks can't make that much difference."
Fact: In fact, over half of our donors give $100 or less. And this season most of the singers in our Chorus have made a contribution.
Myth: "Choral singing?? Shouldn't I send my charitable dollars to third world countries?"
Fact: Well, that's not a bad idea, but choruses improve communities in a few remarkable ways.
Compared to non-singers, adult choristers are more frequent voters, volunteers, and civic leaders, and are much more likely to contribute to philanthropic causes. So in a way, a contribution to a chorus might eventually make an even greater impact on that third world country (not to mention your own community)!
All our thanks,
The 130+ Singers, Staff, and Board of Columbia Pro Cantare
