Raised by 5 people in 4 months
Grace Church in Newark ( www.GraceChurchinNewark.org) is an historical, musical, and active church in downtown Newark, NJ. Home of the tune "America, the Beautiful" written by the then-organist, Samuel Augustus Ward, in the 1890s, we now continue to expand our music program, education, and outreach under the direction of new, British conductor and organist, Tyrone Whiting. 

We are looking for donations and sponsors to help us sustain and develop our growing music program. Can YOU help us raise $1,000 in time for Christmas? Your donation will be greatly appreciated by our Rector and Director of Music, by all at Grace Church, and our community! Please help support the Arts in Newark, NJ and at Grace Church in Newark! 

We currently have a volunteer Adult Choir, a Choir School Chorister Program (ages 7-18), and a brand new concert choir, Brick City Chorus. 

Alongside our Sunday music making in the High Mass liturgy, we are also expanding our concert offerings and community outreach. Future performances include:

Saturday, January 26, 2019 - St. John the Divine Chorister Festival
Our Choir School Choristers will take part in the annual festival at St. John the Divine, Manhattan, culminating in an evensong sung by choirs from New York, New Jersey, and beyond!
