DONATION CAMPAIGNS
Annual Fund for Choral Excellence
The Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh (MCP) depends on the generosity of its patrons to remain artistically vibrant. Ticket sales and performance fees cover only a portion (approximately 30%) of MCP's annual operating expenses. The remainder comes from a variety of sources including foundations, the Allegheny Regional Asset District, the PA Council on the Arts, and individuals like YOU. Please consider adding a donation to MCP's Annual Fund when purchasing your tickets, and have the satisfaction of knowing that you have helped make the music possible!



Bob Page Memorial Fund
Bob Page (1927-2016) was a brilliant conductor, exceptional musician, and teacher extraordinaire who touched the lives of countless singers at the Mendelssohn and Junior Mendelsohn Choirs over his 26 years as Music Director. His legacy is immense and far-reaching—as befits a musical legend. But while others may remember him for his musical achievements and accolades, we will remember Bob for inspiring so many with his enormous passion for choral song, and for sharing with us his exuberant larger-than-life personality. As individuals, and as an organization, our lives are enriched immeasurably for having known Bob.

Bob felt strongly that the Mendelssohn Choir should strive for vocal excellence whether performing choral masterworks with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra or singing his beloved arrangements of show tunes in an outdoor amphitheater. Your donation to the Robert Page Memorial Fund will assist the Mendelssohn and Junior Mendelssohn Choirs expand their community programming bringing the joys of choral music to a wider audience.
Junior Mendelssohn Eshbaugh Scholarship Fund
Please consider making an investment in tomorrow’s musicians by making a gift to the Junior Mendelssohn Choir or the Lauren Nicole Eshbaugh Scholarship Fund. Your gift will benefit young people today while investing in the future of choral song.

The Lauren Nicole Eshbaugh Scholarship was created during the Junior Mendelssohn’s 25th Anniversary season. Lauren was a beloved member of the Junior Mendelssohn Choir (2003-2007). An accomplished pianist
and flutist as well as singer, Lauren chose to study vocal performance at Carnegie Mellon University. Just six weeks into her freshman year, she was diagnosed with an advanced, rare pediatric cancer and passed away in the summer of 2009. Lauren lived her short life to the fullest and inspired everyone with her vibrant, out-going personality. She said that life is about choices and she made the choice “to be happy.”

In memory of Lauren’s love of vocal music and her courageous spirit, the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh created the Lauren Nicole Eshbaugh Scholarship so that all young people will be able to explore their passion and talent for vocal music by participating in the Junior Mendelssohn Program. This Scholarship fund ensures that no young person is turned away for financial reasons.
