Support for a New Beginning

Do you love music, community-building, and New York City? Consider a gift to the Washington Heights Community Choir and support the sustainability of this neighborhood arts organization.

While we've been singing in Upper Manhattan since 2016, in early 2022, the local church that founded our group eliminated our program due to budget challenges. Subsequently, we re-establish ourselves as a standalone entity, with the goal of becoming a permanent fixture in our community.

Keeping the Music Alive

Our membership dues are intentionally lower than many NYC choirs to allow for greater participation. However, they only cover about half of our costs. Your tax-deductible donation will keep us singing and help us expand our activities in upper Manhattan.
