Sustain The Note - Save Newark Boys Chorus School


Please keep Giving!

Thanks to offline donations and more pledges, we're getting closer to our goal to keep the school open!

In the heart of Brick City – Newark, New Jersey – lies a hidden gem, a beacon of hope and musical brilliance, the Newark Boys Chorus School. For over 50 years the NBCS mission has been to develop our students into successful young men of sound character through rigorous academic and musical training. The school has nurtured generations of young minds; these exceptional musicians and well-rounded individuals thrive through experiences of music, academics, and travel. Our young men need your support! NBCS is faced with the looming threat of closure due to financial challenges and is in critical need of immediate funding to ensure that its essential work of educating and mentoring continues not just this fall, but for years to come.

The Newark Boys Chorus School has had a profound impact on its students and the community. It is a testament to the power of the arts in education - the school has opened doors to a future filled with possibilities for thousands of young men. The school provides encouragement and opportunities that they would never be given anywhere else! These experiences will help them on their path to confident, successful futures. Through countless hours of rehearsal, performances, and national and international travel, our young men become brothers, supporting and encouraging each other in their pursuit of excellence. The NBCS experience instills discipline, teamwork, and a strong sense of responsibility, forming the leaders of tomorrow.

If you care about arts education,
If you care about equity,
If you care about the future of urban youth,
If you care about the boychoir tradition,
If you care about the cultural fabric of Newark, NJ, and beyond,
We need YOUR support!

One of our signature songs ends with the line, “Give us hope and we’ll show you the way.” Please, give our boys hope! Help create the way to a brighter future where the Newark Boys Chorus School continues to thrive, where future generations benefit from the transformative power of music, and where the chorus continues to fill hearts with joy and inspiration. In the face of economic hardship, we cannot let this unique institution falter and fade away. With your donation, you are giving hope to young minds and carrying the music to their voices, and your impact will last a lifetime.
