This special evening includes a Silent Auction/Cocktail Reception, a plated dinner, entertainment by our chamber choir Ēchos, and choral excellence awards.

Proceeds of the event support The Choralis Foundation and its programs, including our concerts, educational training, community partnerships and support for young professionals in their choral careers.
