In January 2022, the Jefferson Choral Society received a generous $10,000 grant from the Schewel Charitable Foundation to help fund its 2021-2022 concert season expenses. The JCS is  deeply appreciative of this generous grant, which will strengthen the JCS in its mission to enrich the lives of all Central Virginia citizens through the experience of excellent choral music. The Jefferson Choral Society has been fortunate to be awarded generous 2021-2022 grants from the Schewel Charitable Foundation, the Andrew H. and Anne O. Easley Trust, the Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation, and the Virginia Commission for the Arts. The Virginia Commission for the Arts receives support from the Virginia General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. The JCS is also pleased and grateful to be the recipient of a Member One Federal Credit Union "Giving Tuesday" gift of $2,500. 

We look forward to seeing everyone at our mid-winter and spring concerts! Thank you all for your support of the Jefferson Choral Society
