Support Our Songs
Ticket sales provide less than half the revenue needed to support Vocal Arts DC’s main stage recital series. We are grateful for the support of foundations and government agencies. However, the mainstay of our budget is the generosity of individual donors. Your contributions not only make possible great recitals, they also support important activities benefiting the greater Washington DC community. These activities aim to promote the song recital by developing new singers and new audiences.
Our printed programs for each performance list several levels of support:
Founder ($5,000 and above)
Impresario ($2,500 – $4,999)
Guarantor ($1,000 – $2,499)
Benefactor ($500 – $999)
Patron ($250 – $499)
Sustainer (up to $249)
This fund provides general support for our ongoing activities.
The Gerald Perman Fund for Emerging Artists
Each season, resources from the Gerald Perman Fund help defray the costs of a Vocal Arts DC debut recital by an emerging young talent of outstanding accomplishment and still greater potential. The fund was established to honor our esteemed founder, Gerald Perman.
VADC New Works Fund
In 2015 we began to commission new works for solo voice in an effort to maintain the ongoing vitality of art song literature.
