Give to The Choir School of Newport County

The Choir School of Newport County (CSNC) brings together our choristers’ love of singing and music into the lives of many in the Newport Community area and nationwide. Since its founding in 2014, the CSNC has grown to include the Emmanuel Angel Choir (ages 4-7 1/2, open to all) and Professional Choristers (ages 7 1/2 and up, auditioned), with separate boys and girls choruses, and our CSNC Piano Lesson program for our youth choristers. Beyond Newport, we offer our choristers opportunities to perform on tour in England in 2018 and in New York in 2019, enriching their lives through friendship, discipline, and God. For some, this experience is life-changing as they grow and share their love of singing and choral music. Your gifts positively impact our community in two ways: your contribution funds our choir and avails Newport, Rhode Island community access to live choral performances.

We are most grateful for the enthusiasm and continued support we receive from our loyal Founder’s Circle, Patrons, Benefactors, Sponsors, and Friends. As a 503 (C) 3, we depend on contributions from individuals such as you, as well as foundations and state funding, for CSNC to continue thriving. Today we are seeking to raise $65,000 through individual and corporate donations. Thank you for making your gift now. Every gift makes a difference.

If you believe in the power of music and appreciate the value of live performances, we need your passionate sustaining support to achieve the Choir School’s short- and long-term growth.

Named individual or corporate sponsorships of concerts and events are available, either on an annual or perpetually endowed basis.

Are you interested in helping us build a solid foundation to ensure CSNC’s long-term success? Consider establishing an endowed named choristership that will fund a beloved chorister in perpetuity. We would love to talk with you about how your gift can make a difference. Please let us know your interest by contacting us at 401-848-2562 or through .
