Your donation is a gift to the choir and to the entire community. For information about other ways to support KCS, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lend a Hand
If you're interested in supporting KCS in a non-monetary way, consider serving as a volunteer. Possibilities include working in the lobby at concerts, helping at receptions, setting up concert venues, graphic arts or website support and assisting with donor engagement, or assisting with donations for our rehearsal venue's safe parking program for homeless/working families. For more information, email email@example.com
Advertise with KCS
Our concert programs will be seen by over 2500 audience members this season. KCS audiences are highly educated, generous, engaged in the community and discerning. From running households and educating families, to contracting for services and running businesses--your ads will find avid readers in a unique moment of quiet and contemplation. Program ads offset the costs of providing printed programs to audiences and engage readers. Join other season sponsors, like The Lodge at St Edward Park, to support our audiences & engage customers in your business. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how.
Share the Music
A gift to Kirkland Choral Society is a gift to choral music lovers. We set our ticket prices to be as affordable as possible. Ticket prices represent only about a quarter of the cost of bringing KCS performances to life. We are committed to bringing this music to the community. Support our season with a donation to help keep ticket prices reasonable for audience members. This season, most tickets are $25 for general audience, $20 for seniors. Consider rounding up to the real per capita price of each performance: $100, or $80, respectively.
Help us Celebrate
On May 3rd, 2024 KCS members, close friends and special guests will gather to celebrate our 35th Anniversary and to share a tribute to our outgoing Artistic Director, Dr. Glenn Gregg. This event will include special musical guests, KCS members and Alumni. Help us underwrite this special celebration. Donate before April 2024 at the $500 level and beyond to receive an invitation to this special tribute to help us acknowledge Dr. Gregg. You'll also be among the first to hear about the Artistic Director finalists who will conduct our 2024-2025 Season.
Support a Return to Benaroya Hall
The greatest venue in our region for great choral-orchestral music is inarguably Benaroya Hall. KCS audiences love to attend concerts there and we love to perform there. Every time we return to Benaroya, our ranks swell with additional, auditioned singers who are drawn to the special experience. Renting Benaroya Hall means raising $12,000. We've learned this expense will grow next year as well. Our next Benaroya concert is planned for April 27, 2024. Help us bring KCS audiences to this extraordinary venue, in 2024 and beyond.
Commission New Music
We are a community choir committed to performing the greatest choral-orchestral works of the past and present. Committed, too, to commissioning new compositions and premiering works by diverse modern composers. To commission a new work means $8,000 or more. Become a part of a new-works process. Meet the composers. Create a legacy of music. Email email@example.com to underwrite new music.
Secure our Future
Next season, we will bring audiences three programs, each curated and conducted by a prospective Artistic Director candidate. We will also have an Emeritus Artistic Director, for the first time. All while working to ensure strong orchestral and artistic partnerships for next season and beyond. Consequently, we aim to grow our donor community. For 35 seasons, KCS has been largely self funded. Singers themselves and close family and friends have underwritten our productions. Ticket sales and occasional grants from 4Culture and others have secured the remainder; historically less than 40% of our budget. We aim to grow a donor community over the next few years. Join us now. Help secure our future. We will involve you in what's to come and recognize your contributions in meaningful ways.
