Sponsor A Song

Many of our former singers and audience members have asked if they can help rebuild Cantata’s music library by sponsoring the purchase of specific pieces of music.  The answer is YES!  Here’s how:

(1) Select a favorite choral work from the list below, and note the replacement cost.  As a start, we’ve selected over 80 high-priority pieces that we hope to perform soon; the list will be updated periodically with new titles.  If you have in mind a piece not listed here, please contact cantata@cantataacademy.org to see if it fits our programming needs.

(2) Make a donation in the amount of the replacement cost — two ways:

ONLINE: Click “Donate Now” below.  Be sure to enter the amount corresponding to the replacement cost of your selected work.  Identify the name and composer of your selected work in the “Special Instructions” box.




BY CHECK: First, call (313.242.7282) or e-mail (cantata@cantataacademy.org) us with the name and composer of your selected work to reserve it.  Then, mail a check to P.O. Box 1958, Royal Oak, MI 48068 for the corresponding replacement cost.  Please write the name and composer of the work in the memo line.

    Julie and Jon Margerum-Leys are glad to sponsor “In remembrance” by Eleanor Daley.
    We dedicate it to the memory of our daughter, Meagan Margerum-Leys, who we hope is still singing as she loved it so!
