Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

During the pandemic, we were unable to hold concerts so our revenue was impacted. We resumed our programs in 2021 but our funds were depleted, and we are still striving to increase our funds to their previous levels. We also want to raise additional funds to expand our Young Composers Project and our educational programs for chorale scholars.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Music Education and Community Engagement

Voices Chorale NJ is an auditioned chorus of about 40 members from New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Skilled singers of all ages and experiences are welcome, and the Chorale aims to provide a fulfilling musical experience for members, engaging audience experiences, and educational opportunities for the local community. Performances include collaborations with internationally recognized composers, local children's choirs, chamber orchestras, and professional soloists.

Our programming includes various music, from contemporary choral arrangements to Baroque masterworks, and varied repertoire from across the eras and around the world. We provide multiple concerts to the community each year.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Children

Through our award-winning Young Composers Project, children in grades K-7 are given coaching in music composition at a series of workshops by an accomplished composer. Their finished pieces are then performed at a special concert with the chorale.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our two main goals are to raise money to increase our "reserve fund" which we can be used when funds are low, and to raise additional funds to expand our Young Composers Project and our educational programs for chorale scholars.

We established a reserve fund last year, and we will continue to add to it. We have applied for several new grants, and have re-applied for the grants we have received in the past. We also plan to recruit additional business sponsors. We have a fundraising event schedule for the spring, and we will also will continue to increase our membership through social media campaigns and additional outreach.

Our board members are capable, skilled and dedicated volunteers, and we have several volunteer member committees dedicated to helping our organization grow.

Last year we were able to start a reserve fund, and this year we have continued to increase our revenue through increased membership, fundraising, business sponsors, and grant awards.
