THE STORY:

What is Community Voices?

Community Voices is a program run by Crescendo Academy of Music, a non-profit music academy in Kalamazoo, MI. This program offers musical experiences to teens and adults with mental and/or physical challenges. Participants experience singing, chanting, drumming and making music in a non-competitive atmosphere where the reward is the pleasure of making  music with others.

Why we care about Community Voices

Enrollment has been growing and so has the excitement for the program, both from participants and anyone who has had the opportunity to see them perform. At the end of each session, a concert is presented where the joy and pride every member of Commmuity Voices feels can be seen on their faces and heard in their songs. For most, this is the first time they have been able to participate in a choir. For all, it is clear they love to sing.

Help make Community Voices a sustainable program

Our goal for this fundraiser is to raise $3,500, which will fund Community Voices for a full semester. Costs for this program include instructors, a music therapist, and practice space.

Keeping this program accessible is important to Crescendo, which is why participants only pay $30 per 14-week session. These fees pay for a portion of the program while the rest is funded by Crescendo and our generous donors.

If you would like to help make Community Voices a program that will continue in perpetuity, please consider donating to our campaign. A donation of any amount will help us reach our goal of offering musical experiences to those with mental and/or physical challenges.

Also, please consider sharing this fundraiser with your friends and family via email and social media. Look for the share buttons on this page for facebook and Twitter or send them to the following link:
