The City Choir of Washington, led by Grammy winner Robert Shafer, is presenting its fourth season of great choral masterpieces. The chorus was launched in 2007-2008 to great excitement and critical acclaim by a group of singers who wanted to continue building the legacy of excellence that Mr Shafer's name represents in choral music, both on the local and national stage. This year's season represents the Maestro's 41st in the greater Washington area.

This chorus represents an extraordinary level of personal commitment by individual singers and supporters, who have donated countless hours of their time and talents, as well as remarkable generosity in actual dollars. It has been an honor for my wife Susan to be a founding member, and to be part of the artistic vision it represents.

Music is essential now as much as ever. In times of stress and worry, finding ways to rise above and reach for beauty are even more important to community and well being. This newly formed chorus is bursting with ideas to foster interest and involvement in choral music. An outreach chorus has been presenting programs at schools, nursing homes, and other locations where live music is a cherished treat. In addition, this chorus provides opportunities to children's and young adult's choirs to perform in a professional setting.

We all realize that these are tough times to raise money for any worthy cause. Arts organizations are particularly vulnerable because rarely do ticket sales actually cover production costs. NEW arts organizations are especially in need of individual donors, as most grant donations go only to organizations which have a track record, and staying power of several years.

"She sings, he runs" For a third season, because Susan and I wish to support The City Choir of Washington together, we are combining our "slogan" as a joint request for your support. I have committed to several endurance events in 2010 (the Disney World Goofy Challenge, the Cherry Blossom 10 Mile race, and the Breast Cancer 3-Day walk). Susan has committed to making "Soldier Quilts" to be given to wounded soldiers. For every $500 donated through "Champion the City Choir of Washington," Susan will make a quilt for our wounded soldiers. If you would like to sponsor a quilt in your name, make a $200 donation and e-mail me a note to let Susan and I know that you are sponsoring a quilt.

The City Choir of Washington's first and second seasons were stunning successes. Their third season is shaping up to be at least as exciting. Please be a champion for us.
