Meet Our Patrons
Over the years, the generosity of our patrons has sustained the Tyler Civic Chorale, allowing it to grow into its mission to enrich the community by providing access to high quality music.
Together, Our Voices Reach Further
These generous sponsorships underwrite several initiatives in particular each season which allow the Chorale to share their music with more impact.
At Christmas and on Independence Day, the Chorale hosts free concerts open to the public—events that have become holiday traditions in Tyler and draw hundreds to pack the house each year. These concerts demonstrate the power of music to give shape to the rhythm of seasons, our collective memories, and our celebrations.
In addition to making these free concerts possible, patrons underwrite the addition of a professional chamber orchestra at one concert each season, enabling the community to engage with the rich history of choral composition written for orchestral accompaniment.
