Nove Voce raising funds to attend international competition

It has been an incredibly exciting year for Prince George’s Nove Voce Women’s Choir whose second place ranking at the Canadian National Music Festival this year has qualified them to compete in the 2019 European Choir Games Grand Prix of Nations in Gothenberg, Sweden next August.

Seventy-one choirs from 24 nations are already registered for the Grand Prix of Nations Gothenburg 2019 and fourth European Choir Games. This will be Nove Voce’s first international competition, which runs over eight days, and the choir has turned its attention to fundraising to ensure that all members will be able to travel.

“Choir is truly a team endeavour,” says Nove Voce fundraising chair Laura Parmar. “We all go together or we can’t go at all, which means lots of fundraising.”

The 20 young women are looking forward to representing Prince George on the world stage and are running an online fundraising campaign at www.fundrazr.com/nove-voce.  

For #GivingTuesday on Nov. 27, they have exclusive perks for one day only, such as tickets to Nove Voce’s concert in May. The choir also has a generous donor who is willing to match all contributions on Giving Tuesday, up to $5,000. This will double the impact of all #givingtuesday support!

Visit www.fundrazr.com/nove-voce to watch fun personal videos about the choir, and check out all the other donation perks (with added benefit, they don’t rely on postal service).

The campaign runs until the end of the year with a goal to raise $20,000.
