General Manager's Address
In my past two years at Cornell University, the chorus has been the most important part of my life. I’ve been offered amazing opportunities, life-changing experiences, and I’ve found my best friends. After stepping into my new role as General Manager, I realized that all of these opportunities and experiences could not happen without the generous support we receive from our friends, family, and Alumnae. We are so grateful to you.
I have had many experiences in this last year with the Cornell University Chorus. But, after the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra folded, pulling together Bach’s Mass in B Minor was both a trial and a triumph. A big part of that success was due to the generous sponsorships we received.
While our plans to tour Argentina with the Glee Club in 2012 fell through, we rallied behind the idea of an Endowment Drive. The thought is that future members of the organization should share their music with the world and shouldn’t be hampered by lack of funding. The Chorus will kick off the Endowment Drive at this Fall’s Homecoming and it will then last for two years. Our goal is to double the current endowment as this will significantly increase yearly incomes and will hopefully make the Chorus self-sustaining.
The Chorus offers all of its members lasting musical experiences and equally lasting friends. None of it would be possible, however, without the incredible support from all of you. Thank you!
