Become an Official Sponsor of our 2018-19 Season!

This September, the Dawson Creek Choral Society is entering its fifth season! We are offering six full-year programs and expect up to 180 participants in Kindermusik, Choir, and Musical Theatre. The DCCS is a unique organization for Dawson Creek, in that its programs reach all generations of our community. We believe that music truly is a lifelong journey. Our goal is to cultivate a love of music by providing confidence-building opportunities to all members regardless of age or background.

As non-profit organization, DCCS operates for the benefit of its members. One of our priorities is to provide accessible programming so that all families can participate in music regardless of economic factors. We have a strong partnership with the Dawson Creek Arts & Wellness Society, with all programs eligible for financial support to youth aged 0 to 24.

This year, we are putting on a number of public events. These events include Bright Lights and City Nights – Winter Gala Concert on December 21, the One Night Only Show Choir Concert on February 22, a children’s Musical Theatre production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR in March, and the Flights of Fancy Dessert Concert on May 4. We will also be hosting a number of other non-performance events over the course of the season.

In order to support a wide variety of programs and events, DCCS is seeking partners and sponsors for the year. In-kind support could be building or crafting materials, advertising, office materials, safety equipment, technical equipment (such as PAs and microphones), and children’s instruments. Cash donations will go toward venue rentals, performance rights, costuming, set construction, and other general program expenses.

If you or your company is interested in becoming an official partner with us, please contact Caitlyn Triebel (DCCS Artistic Director) by email or phone, 250-467-9277.

Other ways that you can help are by attending the Co-Op Fuel Good Day on Tuesday, September 18, stopping by to see us at Legacy Car Wash on Saturday, September 22, or by attending any of our any public events. Anyone can also support us by purchasing a DCCS membership – no singing required!

Dawson Creek Arts Fund 2016-17

Here at DCCS we’re thrilled to be helping in a new grassroots initiative to provide funding for children and youth to participate in local arts programs. 

“With the generous financial support of the Child and Youth Mental Health and Substance Use (CYMHSU) Collaborative Local Action Team and the efforts of some members of this fabulous community of Dawson Creek we are happy to announce the launch of the Dawson Creek Arts Fund! The fund was put in place to help children, youth and young adults access programs in the arts that would otherwise be unavailable to them due to financial barriers.  It will function along the same lines as KidSport and Jumpstart and will be administered by the Arts Fund committee. Fund guidelines, application criteria and the application form are attached.” (Angela Reay – Dawson Creek Arts Fund Committee)

You can find the application form here, or in person at the select drop-off locations (Calvin Kruk Centre for the Arts, Dawson Creek Art Gallery, or Northern Lights College. 

Many thanks to the Child and Youth  Mental Health and Substance Use Action Team for your vision and great initiative in Dawson Creek.
