Donate to the Annual Fund Today!

Music lifts us, it inspires us, and it intimately connects us to our emotions. After all, what could be more essentially human than the urge to lift one's voice in song?

The Vocal Arts Ensemble’s unique choral performances combine the elite power of professional singers with architecturally beautiful (and acoustically amazing) spaces, creating an unparalleled concert experience that envelops and inspires the listener as the music comes alive.

As a donor, your gift is the gift of song. Through your generosity, you will help VAE enrich your community by presenting these passionate and innovative performances to audiences of all ages and backgrounds!
