“Singing is a part of my mental health. It’s my joy. It is part of my spirit. And I’m very, very, very grateful to be able to sing with you.”
—Jeenee Lee, VocalEssence Chorus Member
Thank you. Your voice is so needed right now. Fellow singer Jeenee Lee appreciates you and your commitment to singing through the pandemic. Jeenee needed to move to Florida a few months ago to take care of her mom, and because singers like you were willing to keep at it, she was able to join a community of friends to spread joy all season long.
This year’s On Demand concert experience is only possible because of people like you.
Because of the pandemic, VocalEssence is in a different place financially than we’ve ever been at this time of year. We’ve reduced our budget as much as possible, and shifted to virtual programming & concerts —all of which takes more resources, new skills, and patience.
This year, the difference between what it truly takes to bring On Demand concerts to you is $248,680. The good news: There is just $74,293.52 left to fully fund the VocalEssence mission in 2020.
We know this may be a challenging time for you and your family. If you are able to give a contribution today, you’ll be a part of bringing the joy of music to more people.
Join the compassionate group of monthly sustaining donors to allow VocalEssence to spend more resources creating magical online experiences for people like you. In addition, sustaining donors who give up to $20 will receive a branded VocalEssence campfire mug, and donors who give $20 or more per month will receive a branded chenille blanket.
Your gift of any size WILL bring a bright light to others like Jeenee, especially during these uncertain times. Wishing you and your family good health and happiness.
Mary Ann Aufderheide, Executive Director
