Key Chorale receives Community Impact Grant from Community Foundation of Sarasota County

Arts & Culture

Thanks to a grant of $3,200 recently awarded by the Martha Leiter and Nancy Streetman Fund of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, Key Chorale was able to reach out virtually to thousands of singers with their Come Together Choir Online Choral Rehearsals. These rehearsals weren’t just for local singers, but could be experienced by anyone, anywhere in the country via Key Chorale’s YouTube channel.

Viewers registered in advance to receive PDF copies of the music to be rehearsed during these online choral rehearsals. Vital components of Key Chorale's mission are "transforming lives through innovative programming" and "service to the community". Even after these two months of isolation, many organizations have entertained viewers online, but few organizations have enlisted actual participation at the level of this endeavor, nearly 400 registrants from throughout the country and beyond, and more than 4,000 views of the episodes. Though the weekly rehearsals have already premiered, all episodes are always available to watch on Key Chorale’s YouTube channel. If you missed it, you can still register to get PDFs of the music and sing-a-long with the 6 episodes.

“Innovation and service are in the DNA of Key Chorale. We were pleased to provide the therapeutic value of making music, not only to our Sarasota friends of the Off Key Chorale and Where Are My Keys? Chorale, but also to any and every one wanting and needing a lift in these troubling times. We are indebted to the Community Foundation of Sarasota County for underwriting this important outreach and service,” said Larry D Patton, Chorale President.
