Thanks to all of our incredible donors!!! We're so grateful, and excited about our financial and musical progress!

We had a GREAT WEEK in rehearsal preparing for our June 7th Beethoven Concert! We hope you'll enjoy a sneak peak into our process. And for all you alumni out there, don't you miss singing for Prof. Neuen!?

Memories that will never die...

May 01, 2014

Singing together means the world to us! Prof. Neuen has made an impact that will last through our whole lives. We appreciate your help in making this final concert so incredibly special for us and for him--a memory that will last a lifetime!

Let's keep it going--show Prof. Neuen how much we love him!

$10,000 AND COUNTING!

May 06, 2014

EXCITING NEWS!

We reached $10,000! Our concert will happen! Thanks to all of our donors and friends for helping us make it this far!!

We have more exciting news

Knowing of our further needs for this concert, an anonymous donor has challenged us to go for the gold! This donor will match dollar-for-dollar up to $2,500 above and beyond our original goal. Further donations will help us buy:

  • Royce Hall for our dress rehearsal on Friday, June 6
  • Recording expenses 
  • Organ expenses
  • Photography

We can make this concert even better, give Prof. Neuen a glorious send-off, and take the Chorale to heights it has only dreamed of! Any additional funds we raise will serve to bolster next year’s choral program and to assure the quality of UCLA Choral Activities remains high!

PLEASE JOIN OUR WINNING TEAM AS WE GO FOR THE GOLD!!!

 

THANK YOU!!!
