CANE Conversations

Join us on Sunday, September 6 at 2pm (EST) for a panel discussion of Grants During a Time of Crisis. We will speak with grant-makers and grant-writers about their experiences over the last 6 months and about their hopes and concerns going forward. There will be time for question and answer with the audience. This is the third in a series of ongoing CANE Conversations covering current topics for choral musicians. Keep an eye out for our fourth installment on topics of race and culture in choral music, slated for late September or early October.

Registration is required for this event:

Website Wisdom

The Choral Arts New England website has lots of valuable content for choruses and in this time of Covid-19 we point to a hub of information, particularly as it applies to New England choruses, which you can find at

We are always looking for more that we can share and we welcome your contributions to this list, which you can do by using the form at the following link:  

Other organizations are also working to gather and share information.  Chorus America is tracking news and collects information about the impact of Covid-19 that it receives from members and partners.  Visit

Campaign Update: A Voice for Voices

As we mark our 40th year of supporting New England choruses, Choral Arts New England is launching a two-year campaign to double its grant-making endowment. Over the past four decades, we have built an endowment of more than $300,000 and have given more than 260 grants, totaling over $330,000, to support choral singing in the six New England states.
