Our Endowment

Carlisle Sings! is an endowment fund to ensure continued excellence in Carlisle community choral music. While we have a stable operating budget, there is more we can do to commit to the long-term future of Cantate Carlisle and Cantate Young Voices.

Your gift or pledge to Carlisle Sings! will be professionally managed.  Its ultimate goal is to provide income to Cantate Carlisle and Cantate Young Voices,  supporting ever-higher standards of, and opportunities for, choral performance in Carlisle.

Sponsor a Concert

Staging our concerts involves unique costs such as venue rental, instrumentalists, piano rental, sound and lighting systems.

To help offset these costs and allow Cantate to present its programs for the finest listening pleasure of its audiences, we invite Sponsors to assist us for one or both concerts this season.

Place an Ad in our Program

Place an advertisement for your business or organization in our concert programs for an entire season. Two performances in the fall and two performances in the spring reach over 1,200 performers and audience members.

When your business supports Cantate Carlisle, you’re supporting more than performances by some of the area’s best local talent. You’re supporting:

  • A unique network of connections throughout the community, from voice to instruments to theatre to dance to the visual arts.
  • Outreach to young people through Cantate Young Voices, creating an early and lasting appreciation for the cultural heritage of music.
  • Benefit concerts for vital community organizations such as Hope Station (2018) and Domestic Violence Services of Cumberland and Perry Counties (2019).
