Making music is transformative. It feeds our souls, it heals our audiences, and it gives voice to community. But it doesn’t happen without the support of our amazing donors.
Westrick Music Academy, home of Princeton Girlchoir and Princeton Boychoir, is deeply grateful to all who underwrite our endeavors. From the smallest financial gift to the largest, from gifts-in-kind, services, and professional consulting to resources and meeting facilities, every contribution and every kindness makes it possible for us to enrich the lives of others.
You might be surprised at how profoundly your gift helps. Tuition and ticket sales cover much less than the full cost of our world-class programs. In addition, we offer a generous tuition assistance program to assure that anybody who has the passion for singing can participate in Princeton Girlchoir, Princeton Boychoir, and other Westrick Music Academy programs.
Thanks to our donors, Westrick Music Academy is able to do so many incredible things. Some highlights include:
- Sustain a large, beautiful space that allows our programs to develop and grow organically, particularly Princeton Girlchoir and Princeton Boychoir.
- Offer a very generous tuition assistance fund, helping to assure that every person can participate in our high quality programs.
- Hold outreach performances throughout the year to very grateful communities like assisted living facilities.
- Create new programs with high artistic standards, like Poco Voce, a fun class for younger children, and Camp Westrick, our amazing summer camp.
