Have a vision for a new choral event? A dream project you’ve always wanted to do? BCCF can help!
We offer many resources to our members that can help make their events successful. Our expertise includes sourcing clinicians, choosing venues, creating ideas for workshops, event registration, and much more. BCCF can also help fund your project through our grants.
Anything Is Possible
If you have a great idea for an event, we’d love to hear about it. Here are some possible event or workshop ideas:
- Choir management (administration, finances, music libraries, publicity, etc.)
- Vocal health and technique
- Bringing in a visiting clinician
- Hosting a guest choir for a workshop
- A singing day for boys/girls/men/women only
- Workshops on a particular piece of music, or for a particular section of the choir
- A themed singing day (jazz, gospel, baroque, etc.)
- A flash mob
BCCF can help fund your project in one of two ways.
A – Direct Grant. BCCF awards funds to a member choir for use in a proposed event. The host choir is financially responsible for any losses or profits.
B – BCCF Event. BCCF agrees to take financial responsibility for a proposed event. The host choir(s) will work on organizing and executing the event, but BCCF will receive any losses or profits.
These two methods are explained in more detail in the Application Form below.
