Thank You For Your Support!

Thank you to everybody who gave to the Joseph Gregorio Artistic Director Fund Matching Gift Challenge!

We’re looking forward to season seven! To celebrate the announcement of our new Artistic Director, Erik Peregrine, Ensemble Companio created the Joseph Gregorio Artistic Director Fund to provide targeted support for our greatest and most important annual investment: musical leadership. Named in honor of Ensemble Companio’s visionary Founding Artistic Director, this fund was conceived to secure the future of the chorus for many years to come.

In season six, the 27 musicians of our unique traveling choir come together in the pursuit of musical excellence, a feeling of community, and that special transcendence and fulfillment that only singing can achieve. In times of trouble and times of thanks, music is comfort, sustenance, and joy. We drive to sing so that we can share that music — that sustenance and joy — with our greater Ensemble Companio Community. Traveling the Northeast corridor from Boston to Brooklyn, Philadelphia to Washington DC and up to the Greater Albany area, every dollar drives us a few miles farther on our journey.

singingYour contribution to Ensemble Companio’s
Drive to Sing will:

  • Fund Performance Costs such as venue rentals, music purchases, and travel expenses, supporting more concerts at higher levels of excellence
  • Enable Special Projects including community outreach, recordings, and commissions
  • Secure Our Future with a funded directorship, performances beyond the Northeast, and broader artistic vision
