Support

The Vocal Arts Ensemble relies on the generous support of our donors and concert attendees to provide the funds needed to continue and maintain the exceptionally high quality of music making that has been the hallmark of this group for more than 20 years. Did you know that ticket sales cover less than half of the costs associated with operating and concert expenses? We hope that you will partner with us and generously invest in this group to ensure that the tradition of great choral music continues.

Ways to give:

  1. Send a check to Vocal Arts Ensemble, c/o Dr. Rodney Wynkoop, 4103 Liddington Drive, Durham, NC 27705.
  2. Place a check or cash donation in the box as you leave a concert.
  3. Make a credit card donation when attending a concert. A person will be available near the exit to assist you. Please note that we can accept credit card donations only at concerts.
