Funding the Future of Art Song

Bringing Chicago audiences world-class art song experiences is only possible through the generous support of our community of donors.

Your donations allow the Collaborative Arts Institute of Chicago to continue bringing internationally acclaimed artists to Chicago, presenting performances of inspired art song and vocal chamber music in exciting, intimate venues ideal for appreciating this music.

Gifts made to CAIC help bring our programming to life, including the sounds, the spaces, and enhancing the audience experience.

Simultaneously, your contributions allow artists the opportunity to perform cherished repertoire with new audiences, premiere a new piece, or curate a project that marries text, music, and more.

Donations to CAIC are divided into three vital funding categories:

  • Artistic Development - These funds will aid CAIC in continuing to bring world-class international vocalists, collaborative pianists, and chamber musicians to CAIC’s mainstage recitals and annual Collaborative Works Festival. 
  • Educational Advancement - Help young singers and pianists develop the unique skills required for the performance of art song and vocal chamber music. Your donation allows for CAIC’s unique, entrepreneur-focused Vocal Chamber Music Fellowship program to thrive and expand its annual offerings, and allow CAIC to maintain its robust public master class series.
  • Operations - Donations also ensure that CAIC’s organizational structure remains intact, allowing for expanded staff positions, focusing on broader marketing, developing partnerships with local nonprofits that serve underrepresented audiences, and more. 

If one of these particular categories speaks to you, or you’d like to learn more about an exclusive sponsorship opportunity, contact CAIC’s Executive Director, Eric Ferring at

CAIC is a nationally recognized 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization.
