Honor Nancy Grundahl by supporting our New Commission Music Fund

In celebration of Nancy Grundahl’s retirement this spring, we are excited to announce a new fund to keep supporting new music written just for our Angelica singers.

About this fund:
Angelica has a strong tradition of commissioning music for our singers from composers such as Malcolm Dalglish, Tim Takach, Dan Kallman, and Steve Heitzeg; composers who understand the complexity of writing for singers of a wide variety of ages and musical abilities, and who enjoy the challenge of finding a text that will resonate with children of varying degrees of maturity and understanding. Our singers benefit from learning and performing a piece that has been written especially for them. 


This new fund honors Nancy Grundahl, who has dedicated her talents to our young singers through her artistic leadership for 25 years and who has composed countless original works for our choirs. By creating this fund in her name, we ensure that new choral works will be written especially for our young singers -- music that will challenge them and instill the values of creativity, craft, and fresh ideas.

Marie Burton With Thanks to Nancy Grundahl for the many memories. I love the repertoire you compose especially for ACYC and I am always moved when a song my daughter sang when she was young comes to life again in your choir. We have so enjoyed our time with, and the experiences provided to us by ACYC over the last 15 years. The 2004 trip to San Francisco was amazing! Thank you for your dedication to ACYC, providing premier choral performance opportunities for youth. Encore!

Rita Docter With Thanks to Ann Schrooten, for teaching us to love making music together, and helping us to experience  the power of music to communicate, heal, break through barriers, create community and transport the soul!!
