The Men’s chorus has performed over 50 concerts for various organizations and charities to help them raise money. Some charities have raised as much as $50,000 from sponsoring a Saengerfest concert. The Chorus performs for only its expenses.
Sponsors provide a suitable concert venue with seating capacity adequate for their making a profit. Sponsors sell the tickets and keep the proceeds after paying all expenses including the Chorus’ minimal concert fee. The sponsors provide a tuned piano (and if available, a pipe organ) risers for the chorus, sound, lighting and custodial services. They also print, distribute and sell the tickets, provide publicity and ushers for the concert and often sell advertising in their program which they print and distribute.
One of the unique attractions of a Saengerfest concert is to have a post-concert reception giving the sponsors and choristers the opportunity to mingle with each other and with members of the audience in an informal and friendly gathering.
The Saengerfest Men’s Chorus invites sponsors to participate in fund raisers that are fun and profitable.
