Chor Leoni Men’s Choir Endowment Fund and
Chor Leoni Diane Loomer Commissioning Fund

 Click here to donate.

When Founder Diane Loomer created Chor Leoni in 1992 she had a vision: to build a choir that would carry on the esteemed tradition of men’s choral singing and create adventurous new musical experiences for singers and audiences to share.

Through Diane’s demanding baton and creative vision, and the singers’ ceaseless dedication, Chor Leoni became one of the world’s very best male choirs. Now under the inspired leadership of Artistic Director Erick Lichte, Chor Leoni’s future is bright indeed, and we welcome you to join us in support of Diane’s vision.

 Please donate to our endowment fund today at the
Vancouver Foundation’s website.

The Chor Leoni Men’s Choir Endowment Fund and Chor Leoni Diane Loomer Commissioning Fund, managed by The Vancouver Foundation,  are a treasure. The principal will never be spent and annual interest generated by the fund provides an enduring base of financial security for the choir, and the Diane Loomer Commissioning Fund supports the commissioning of major works for male choirs.

Donations are fully tax-deductible and every single gift will help the endowment grow. Recent federal tax changes mean that you can make a very tax-effective gift by donating publicly traded securities instead of cash. Contact us to find out more about this option. Thank you for supporting Chor Leoni!

“There’s something very inspirational – a basic goodness – when men sing together. The endowment will ensure that Chor Leoni, and what the choir stands for, never fades. You can help the choir be a standard and inspiration for the greater choral community and choral art, not only here in Vancouver and in Canada, but also throughout the world.”
– Diane Loomer, C.M., Founder
