Join the Friends of Music: make an annual gift

We are so happy to share our music with you, your families and friends. And whether you are a loyal supporter of many years, or new to us, we are grateful for your interest and we ask for your support.

Your annual gift makes the concerts you love a reality -- Christmas, Brahms, Bach, Mendelssohn and English Renaissance masters -- Dennis Keene's artistic leadership, our remarkable musicians, and exceptional soloists -- all singing and playing for you!

Ticket income covers only a fraction of concert costs -- the rest comes from contributors like you! We invite you to join the Friends, enjoy the benefits listed below, and know that you are helping to express the distinctive voice that is Voices of Ascension.

Premier Patron $10,000 + Tickets as requested. Private events as scheduled.

Donor $250 + 3 signed Voices CDs of your choice.
Contributor $100 + 1 signed Voices CD of your choice.
Supporter $1 + Gifts over $100 will be listed in all programs.

Each category includes the benefits of the lower categories except tickets and subscriptions, which are not cumulative.

Voices Reserve Fund

The Voices Reserve Fund is established as a board-restricted reserve fund with two goals:

First, to provide a financial cushion to protect Voices of Ascension from economic downturns.

Second, to provide seed money for special artistic projects. Our goal for Phase One is to reach $25,000.


Your gift above and beyond your annual giving will help us reach our objective. Whatever you decide, your support is critical to achieving this goal. Year-end donations can be made online at or through the mail:
