Ancora, a Seattle-based women's choir named for the musical term meaning "again," began as a place for women to rekindle their joy of singing after graduating from the choirs of their youth. Now, through Ancora, we strive to be a conduit of singing and musical inspiration to our community, providing a space for choral art to be accessible to all.

Now in our 14th year, our membership has grown to include women from a wide variety of choral backgrounds. With your much appreciated support, we can continue to provide an active choral presence throughout the Puget Sound region, performing two major concerts a year, as well as participating in outreach community events, such as Northwest Folklife Festival, Leavenworth tree lighting celebrations, and collaborative presentations with other Puget Sound music organizations.

Our mission drives our needs! Your 2018 GiveBIG donation towards our $7,000 fundraising goal will help us to

• provide opportunities for musical fellowship to beautifully-voiced women regardless of their ability to "pay-to-play,"
• enchant audiences with exquisite music without charging out-of-reach ticket prices,
• reach out to under-served communities with educational choral arts workshops, and
• continue to program a variety of interesting repertoire for our singers and audiences to enjoy.

We have a passion for connecting people through music, performing repertoire both adventurous and traditional that highlights the beauty and mystique of the female voice. Ancora's choral artistry reaches out to audiences with a depth that illustrates the singers' interpretive and technical skills. Please help us to continue that artistic outreach so our singers and our audiences can experience the "Ancora sisterhood" connection. Thank you!
Ancora is grateful for all the generous support provided by its patrons and donors. Thank you!
