Ambassadors of Song
Once a month, every month, Greg Patterson helps strengthen youth music education by giving to Ambassadors of Song. And because his gifts are in the form of automatic monthly deductions, Greg can focus his considerable energies on singing (with twoquartets), directing (for two choruses), and everything else in his life.
“It’s $15 that would otherwise go towards eating out,” he says. “So why not invest it instead in something that really matters to me? When I think about everything the barbershop community has given me—including a warm welcome when I first moved to town—I’m glad to give something back.”
Greg has firsthand knowledge of the importance of gifts like his: he himself benefited from a Director’s College scholarship a few years ago. “During that week-long immersion, a lightbulb went on,” he says. “I understood immediately how I could help inspire and coach other singers. That was a turning point in my life.” Donors to Ambassadors of Song can arrange for automatic monthly deductions at any level, starting at just $10 per month. It’s easy to begin investing in the future of barbershop—and surprisingly rewarding.

Together, we can change lives.
We can inspire interest in young singers. We can turn interest into skill, skill into aspiration, aspiration into achievement. What will your gift to Sing America programs mean?
Music. You can help supply licensed barbershop music free to school music programs.
Exposure. You can support barbershop harmony singing demonstrations in schools. You can even keep your impact local, because Donor Choice allows you to direct up to 30 percent of your gift toward your home chapter.
Excitement. You can help underwrite Youth Harmony Workshops (one-day festivals) and Harmony Explosion Camps (multi-day events), bringing students and educators together to meet new friends, hear demonstrations, and learn to produce thrilling harmonies.
Development. You can help turn raw talent and enthusiasm into competition-ready skill and lifelong enjoyment for young people. Youth chorus competitions, collegiate quarter contests, and Director’s College training for chorus directors are just some of the ways your gifts can support tomorrow’s barbershoppers.
