Last week we held our annual Christmas concert and fundraiser at the McKinley Arts Center and based on the surveys and money raised, we are on the right track and growing. We tried a few new things along with the raffle and program and it all seemed to be successful. Now the challenge is to grow a little more.
We also announced our spring offering which will be titled “Cheers For 50 Years.” That’s right, 50 years. When we did the name change we discovered that the Secretary of State’s office identifies our date of becoming a nonprofit organization as December 31, 1968. New year’s Eve will be the 50th Anniversary of the date. So I’m asking all of our supporters to give us a shout out here and on Facebook. Let us know who you are and where you are so that we can make our next event even bigger and better than ever before. Are you ready?
Formerly the Sierra Nevada Master Works Chorale, our name change reflects a different approach to our performances. We are still dedicated to bringing you the best, highest quality chorale music as we have since our beginnings in 1968. We are now presenting a larger body of songs. We will still perform some of the best choral music of the best Master Composers but we are adding more contemporary and popular songs as well. This will aid our efforts in our community outreach performances as we re-establish ourselves as a community choral group with a simple mission: “Sharing the Gift of Song.”
On Saturday December 1st amid the snow and cold, singers from the Sierra High Notes visited several assisted living facilities to spread the “gift of song.”
Our efforts were well received. Join us on December 8th and 9th at the McKinley Arts Center to see the complete show!
Once again the Christmas Season is upon us and so it is time for our annual Christmas Concert and Fundraiser event. We will be performing at the McKinley Arts Center again on December 8th and 9th.
This also means that our fundraising efforts are getting revved up. There are several ways to help support the Sierra High Notes. Businesses can donate items to our Raffle. Hopefully you pick up a customer or two. A second option for businesses is to simply donate. As a thank you for donations, we will place your logo on our website and Facebook pages.
