Together We Rise 2020-2021 Campaign

Jul 7, 2020 Sep 20, 2020


Never has our mission been more important than now. We are committed to finding ways to continue bringing the transformative power of music to our community – even during this pandemic. These days of self-isolation have reminded us how essential it is to come together to experience the power of music to inspire and uplift. We are resolved to use our creativity and innovation to reinvent and reimagine the ways we do that this season and in the seasons to come.

The Together We Rise 2020-2021 Campaign will enable and empower Key Chorale’s transformative work in the 2020-2021 season, which will include reconceived rehearsals and events and newly amended educational and community outreach.

Together we can achieve our fundraising goal of $175,000 over this next fiscal year. You can help by supporting us with your tax-deductible financial donation.

Update… Thanks to an overwhelmingly successful 2020 Giving Challenge, we have already raised and committed $40,000 toward this goal! All money raised will contribute to the support our innovative performances, as well as our award-winning educational and community outreach programs.

Here’s what we’ll do together this season:

  • Key Chorale will continue to bring you a season of creative and collaborative performances and special events either live, online or both.
  • We will record eight new episodes of the Come Together Choir, Online Choral Rehearsals to reach singers throughout the country bringing music experiences for those social distancing.
  • We will continue to create specialized programming for our Off-Key Chorale, for those living with Parkinson’s disease, and Where Are My Keys? Chorale, for those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia via electronic means until it is safe for them to gather.
  • With Neuro Challenge Foundation, we will expand our Off-Key Chorale to both Manatee and Highlands counties.
  • Provide musical experiences for more than 400 students through our educational programs with the Sarasota Public Schools, our Student Scholar program, and including our work with the K-5 at-risk students of Visible Men Academy.
  • Launch “Morning Coffee & Maestros,” a series of online conversations with Artistic Director Joseph Caulkins and Associate Conductor Jamal Sarikoki exploring important topics about music, the arts, culture and our world.

None of what we’ve achieved in the past would have been possible without YOU, our remarkable Key Chorale supporter. Join us in our determination to keep our community singing – especially in these uncertain times.
