The past two years have been difficult financially for the New Orleans Children's Chorus, like many non-profit organizations. Because of Covid, our largest source of income, the Crescent City Choral Festival, had to be cancelled the past two years, depriving the organization of significant operating support. Our 2022 festival is currently going ahead, but with much smaller enrollment than in previous years. We have been working diligently to secure grants and increased donations to help us get through the 2021-22 season. We expect to be able to hold our festival in 2023, but need as much money as we can raise to get through this season.
