Donations Spotlights

Serenade! Choral Festival

Since its inception in 2011, Classical Movements’ Serenade! Washington, D.C. Choral Festival has presented choirs from around the globe in the U.S. capitol each June and July, with a major focus on raising funds in a variety of innovative ways: sponsoring underfunded, yet culturally worthy ensembles—like Pihcintu, an all-girl, all-refugee girl choir—organizing benefit concerts, such as our annual fundraiser for the Welcome Table Choir (comprised of singers from Greater Washington’s homeless community), as well as other initiatives benefiting, the Baltimore Symphony’s ORCHKids program and United Community Ministries in our hometown of Alexandria, Virginia, to name just a few.

Instrument Donation

With many of this country’s most accomplished professional and collegiate instrumental ensembles as clients, Classical Movements is keenly aware of the vital importance quality instruments play in developing the next generation of musicians studying at conservatories, youth orchestras and community schools around the world. With this fact always on our minds, Classical Movements has donated instruments and supplies to educational organizations as far flung as the Eastern Cape Youth Orchestra in South Africa, the National Music Conservatory of Jordan and the Groton School of Massachusetts, in addition to facilitating similar donations from clients touring regions with limited access to high-quality instruments.

Endangered Species

Classical Movements remains equally as passionate about supporting extra-musical causes—especially, preserving Mother Nature's most critically endangered birds, beasts and relatives. Such species include the African black rhino, which is still poached for its horn, as well as continued sponsorship of orphaned elephants and giraffes in Kenya, who will eventually be reintroduced to the wild.
CM is a proud sponsor of the Rhino Pride Foundation, working to protect the world's rhinos from extinction by creating sustainable areas that will enable future generations to experience these amazing creatures.
