The New York Choral Society is thrilled to announce that we’re a recipient of the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs’ Cultural Development Fund (CDF)! This year, over $58 million was awarded to more than 1,000 cultural groups across the five boroughs, representing an investment made on behalf of all New Yorkers in these organizations – including us – and our work.
With record funding from Mayor Eric Adams and City Council, DCLA awarded the most funding to the largest-ever number of cultural organizations, which include major boosts for smaller groups and organizations led by people of color, as well as groups that are receiving City support for the first time.
For us, this CDF grant supports our production of Ellington’s Sacred Concerts which took place November 18 and 19, 2022.
