Welcome to the Choral Arts Foundation of the Upper Valley!

The Choral Arts Foundation of the Upper Valley is a non-profit 501(c)(3) foundation committed to supporting the choral arts in the Upper Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire. Our ultimate goal is to energize those who sing and those who listen to both formal and casual performances of community choruses, church choirs, and school music groups.

NEWS: 2020 Grants for Upper Valley Choral Groups

It takes double the effort to pull together virtual rehearsals and performances, so we are doubling our budget for grants this cycle! Whether you need funding for a virtual streaming platform, or you need to hire a professional to mix singers’ solo recordings into one video with the full choral sound, or you want to organize a socially distant outdoor singing event, CAFUV would like to help you pull it off! Just fill out this proposal form and email it to CAFUVgrants@gmail.com by the June 15 deadline! Grants are typically for $250-$1000, and you can find more information about CAFUV grants here. We will try to support as many projects as we can! 
Some of you have already started sending us other ideas about how CAFUV can help choruses during this time when we need singing the most–thank you for your ideas, and keep them coming! You can help us help you all stay connected by “liking” the CAFUV Facebook page and tagging us in your posts if you’d like us to help spread the word about what your chorus is up to. We hope that, once we’ve all got concerts scheduled again, this will become a great resource for all of the Upper Valley singers to keep tabs on singing opportunities and events in the area.
