for our 2019-2020 concert season. Your financial support helps pay chorus expenses and
keep our concerts free and open to all.
One simple transaction places your ad in
ALL programs for our 2019-2020 concerts.
Your ad will be seen by ever-growing, enthusiastic audiences in Ithaca and the surrounding region, and your sponsorship clearly demonstrates your support of community building through music.
DCJS was named in honor of current Ithaca resident Dr. Dorothy Cotton, civil rights pioneer and social justice advocate who worked closely with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Our chorus includes a diverse group of community members and college students and is directed by Dr. Baruch Whitehead, associate professor of music education at Ithaca College. DCJS is dedicated to the preservation and performance of the Negro Spirituals, which were designated a National Treasure in 2007 by the U.S. Congress. This powerful music speaks to our American history and offers inspiration and hope today as it has for generations. DCJS performs for many local & regional events and celebrations, and presents at least one formal concert in Ithaca each semester. In fall 2016, DCJS performed the opera “Porgy and Bess” with Opera Noire at Ithaca College. Following our Ithaca spring concert on May 12, 2017, we joyously shared our program at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C. On May 11, 2018, we perform a Community Celebrations Concert at the State Theater entitled “The Quilt Speaks: Signs & Symbols from the Underground Railroad.”
Your ad will be seen in the programs for all of our local 2019-2020 fall and spring concerts.
