The Collegiate Chorale cherishes a rich collaboration with the Verbier Festival since its first appearance at the festival under James Levine in 2005. The Chorale is thrilled to honor the festival at the occasion of their 20th anniversary and to celebrate a shared mission for artistic excellence and inter-generational exchange through music. The Chorale's grand concert performance of the operetta Song of Norway will be followed by the benefit dinner, a lively and always vastly entertaining auction, the proceeds of which will support The Chorale's artistic and education programs. Benefit guests will have the opportunity to sponsor high school and college students from our unique Side-by-Side program to travel with The Chorale to the Verbier Festival this summer. Approximately 200 guests from New York's social and philanthropic community attend the Benefit every spring. The event will begin at 6pm with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in Carnegie Hall's Rose Museum, followed by Robert Wright and George Forrest's Song of Norway in the Stern Auditorium at 6:30pm. The seated dinner and live auction will follow in the Rohatyn Room. Attire is festive. Benefit tickets are available from $500 to $1,500 and Benefit tables from $5,000 to $15,000.
