We're almost there! Help us raise Zoe's final payments for her Chorale tour of Italy in June!

The opportunity of a lifetime, for a great kid who has worked hard for the opportunity.  The nationally and internationally acclaimed Colorado Springs Children's Chorale will be touring Italy in June and July, performing at numerous stops around the country, including a Mass at Saint Peter's Basilica in Vatican City.  They go to share their message of music and kids, and friendship through music.  Being a part of this trip is a dream and an honor for Zoe, who has been performing with the Chorale for three years, and will be one of the youngest members making the trip. Zoe has ancestral family in Italy, making this trip even more special to her and her family. 

Any excess funds raised will be used to help other members of Children's Chorale who need help making final payments, or simply donated to the Colorado Springs Children's Chorale, a fantastic nonprofit organization, to help them continue teaching and creating young vocalists.   Zoe will be presenting the final payment herself, and any excess monies will be donated in the name of Friends of Zoe Chavez.  Thanks so much for reading, and for supporting a great kid, and a great cause!

In Zoe's own words: 

Hi, I am Zoe, and I am a normal 11 year old kid. Children's Chorale is the most important part of my life. Chorale has already allowed me to have some wonderful experiences that I hope to keep with me forever. As a part of Chorale, I have already been many places that I probably would not have visited on my own, like Aspen, Colorado, and Bardstown, Kentucky. I have also met people from Fujiyoshida, Japan. They were so nice, and taught me so many things that I didn’t know about their country and culture. I even learned how to write my name using calligraphy!

Later this year, I get to have an experience that most kids my age could never dream of having! I am going to Italy in late June to spread our message of song and music to people on a completely different side of the world. But besides the amazing traveling opportunities, and great people I get to see and meet, there is much more to Chorale than just that for me.

To me, Chorale isn’t just a group of kids. Chorale is a big family of people who all share the same passion, a love of music. I don’t have any siblings, but Chorale is where I have the chance to have a great big group of brothers and sisters. If I am having a bad day, I know that when I walk into the practice room at Chorale, my sadness will just float right off of me, because music is the best thing ever! That is what being a part of Chorale means to me. Thanks for reading, and thanks for helping me out!

Love,

Zoe
