The Chordials would not be the same without our fantastic alumni, members, and all of their families. Their donations help us create the music that we love so dearly, and yours can too! Every donation to the Chordials helps us record, preform, tour, and ultimately do what we love. Any amount, from $5 to $10,000, helps push us toward the tier of musical excellence that we strive for.

For context, we learned that we would not be getting funding this semester from the university this semester. We were planning all of the ways in which we might pull off a concert with the funds we had; we threw our dreams of recording this semester out the window.
We were overwhelmed by the support that we received from our friends, families, and alumni. After our Cornell Giving Day campaign, we've received over $9,680!
Thank you to everyone who donated or spread the word about our campaign. We surpassed our goal by over $3000! Words cannot describe how grateful our group is for everyone's support. We can truly feel the Chordzlove.
