Each participating choir sent an amount of its own choosing, raised in various ways, and with their own messages to the members, staff, and friends of the New Orleans Children's Chorus.
The YCC contribution of $200 represented gifts of all sizes from singers and their
families, staff, board members, and from the choir itself.
Other choirs and their contributions included the Nebraska Children's Chorus ($754), the Sioux Falls Girls Chorale ($80), and the Siouxland Youth Chorus, Sioux City, IA ($50).
The most recent update on the New Orleans Children's Chorus Web site indicates that directors are still trying to find all members of their several choirs, even as they
begin rehearsals in new sites.
