Deborah Simpkin King, Artistic Director & Founder
Ember’s outstanding choral performances, innovative programming, and enriching educational initiatives are made possible by the generosity of patrons like you.
Gifts and grants to Ember represent over fifty percent of the funding for all our activities.
Every gift supports our mission to produce concerts of high quality and vision and educational programs of depth.
Your tax-deductible contribution, recognized in our handsome concert programs, supports the artistry of bringing concerts of exceptional range and beauty to the people of New Jersey, New York, and the wider world.
Ember is fortunate and grateful to receive funding from the NJ State Council on the Arts and foundations such as the Frank and Lydia Bergen Foundation, the Marjorie Bunnell Charitable Trust, and the Alice M. Ditson Fund of Columbia University. In addition, many generous individuals support Ember as do corporations, including AIG, ExxonMobil, Morgan Stanley, and Prudential.
