Part of all ticket proceeds will benefit two local non profit organizations!
A portion of ticket sales will be donated to support The Colorado Springs Children’s Choral and a second charity TBD, to benefit their causes and support our community.
Our 2022 event raised $850 for each of our non profit organizations for a total of $1,700 in donations.
Read about the non profit organizations we helped last year below. Stay tuned for the second organization that the 2023 event will benefit.
In its 44 years of existence, and with a low turnover rate among its artistic and executive management, the Colorado Springs Children’s Chorale has developed a unique and specific philosophy. This philosophy aims to use high standards of performance and professionalism to instill in CSWAC singers a set of values that propel them towards a lifetime of achievement and excellence.
Colorado Springs World Affairs Council is a non-profit organization that promotes understanding of world affairs by sponsoring educational programs for people of all ages, fosters discussion of international issues, and provides a venue for people to meet others with similar interests from around the corner and around the world.
