THE EVERETT CHORALE
Engaging our community through our music
The Everett Chorale performs a wide variety of choral music for the enrichment and enjoyment of our community while providing local singers with the opportunity to increase their musical knowledge and experience. Because of Covid, the Everett Chorale isn’t currently rehearsing. When we return, our rehearsals will be on Monday evenings from 7:00 - 9:30 at Our Savior's Lutheran Church, 215 Mukilteo Blvd, Everett, WA 98203.
Friends of the Everett Chorale
The goal of the Friends of the Everett Chorale campaign is to encourage many small donations. Your $10 donation, added to others, will help us reach our $20,000 goal!
Dear Friends of the Everett Chorale,
September marks the beginning of the 56th year for Everett Chorale. We are so thankful to have made it through year 55! It’s a year we will always remember. Last year we shared our hope to "Protect the Flame" and with your help we were able to do that.
The year brought many changes and challenges. The biggest change was that our Artistic Director, Jennifer Rodgers, graduated from the University of Washington with her Doctor of Musical Arts degree and received a job offer at Iowa State University. We were thrilled for her! But that meant conducting an Artistic Director search during COVID times. We were successful and are announcing our new Artistic Director/Conductor.
We are ready to move forward. We are planning on beginning rehearsals again this Fall and to be performing live for you in our 2021/2022 season. The theme for our Friends of the Everett Chorale donation campaign this year is "Strengthen the Flame for Everett Chorale’s Return." The future is still uncertain. We need your help to make sure we can begin our rehearsals and cover the costs of performing for you – to Strengthen the Flame.
Donations of any size will help. When you hear us singing together, joyfully raising our voices, you will know you helped to make it happen!
You may donate here or by mailing a check made out to the Everett Chorale Association to:

Thank you so much,
Shauna Croft, President of the Board of Directors of The Everett Chorale
