American Friends

We have established the American Friends of Tenebrae to support the choir’s tours and related activities in the United States.

In the USA, Tenebrae has undertaken 7 tours since 2003 and performed at several prestigious concert series including at:

  • Brigham Young University, Utah – a residency working with the university students for collaborative performances of Handel’s Messiah
  • Cathedral Basilica of St Louis, Missouri
  • Princeton University, New Jersey
  • Spivey Hall, Georgia
  • University Musical Society, Michigan

Furthermore, Tenebrae’s November 2019 USA tour is set to be our busiest and most far-reaching to date.

The opportunity for young singers to perform alongside Tenebrae’s professional singers is an inspiring experience and one which we are keen to continue to develop. This was demonstrated during our recent USA tour in March 2018 where we performed Owain Park’s Footsteps with over 200 youth and amateur singers. This would not have been possible without the support and generosity of our donors.

Here is a video of Tenebrae’s performance on the US television show, Music and the Spoken Word, at the Salt Lake Tabernacle in Utah:

Tenebrae is able to accept tax-deductible donations of $50+ from American donors in partnership with CAF America; if you wish to support us you may give to CAF America and recommend that the grant be made to The Tenebrae Choir. We also have a designated fund at National Philanthropic Trust and American supporters may donate via the designated fund to give tax-effectively and receive a US tax receipt.
