Our 2021-22 fundraising efforts are:
to further promote the virtual opera On Call: COVID-19
to launch the fourth Chicago Paris CABARET CONNEXION conference in April 2022
to premier in June 2022 our live opera FUTURE PERFECT
to come back into the public CLASSROOMS and
to build on the phenomenal artistic success of our newest initiative BLACK VOICES IN CABARET.
Individual donors have helped us bring in more than $22,000 since March 2020.
Donor CB writes: A good cause. My heart easily melts when children’s growth is concerned… If each one of us can only give $1000, even if ‘we cannot afford,’ then the goal is reached. Let’s think BIG!
Deneen, hearing Christine Steyer’s performance of the new aria “Red Is a Trick”, searched us out in order to send a generous check and wrote: I left Saturday with such a happy heart after hearing you sing! …Phenomenal!!!!
Dr. Iryna on viewing the COVID opera: I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute with tears in my eyes, as it hit so close to home and felt very personal, something that I lived and still do. The music was phenomenal. I have made a donation on the website. You are such a wonderful talented team!
