Help Support Us for #NYGivesDay 2016
The New York Council of Nonprofits (NYCON) and United Way of New York State (UWNYS) along with their technology partner, GiveGab, formed a partnership to launch #NYGivesDay, New York’s first ever statewide day of giving in 2016. #NYGivesDay is a 24-hour online challenge to celebrate nonprofits across the state of New York. Canticorum Virtuosi, Inc. and thousands of nonprofits across the Empire State will work together to raise awareness, collect donations, and build a stronger sense of philanthropy throughout their local communities. #NYGivesDay 2016 will be held on #GivingTuesday, Tuesday, November 29th, 2016 from 12 AM Eastern Time - Midnight. The giving takes place online at www.NYGivesDay.org.
With support from The ASCAP Foundation, a highly successful, first of its kind Choral Composers Workshop was held at ASCAP, just in advance of a much anticipated concert to take place on November 15th, 2014 at Merkin Concert Hall, NYC: World Premieres by 10 Young Composers. This unique workshop afforded Harold Rosenbaum, ASCAP member and conductor of The New York Virtuoso Singers, a wonderful opportunity to highlight and discuss many of the daunting challenges composers face when writing for chorus. The next workshop takes place on November 13th, 2015.
