As you know, DBC is a world-renowned choir that has demanded the attention of Royalty and Heads of State. However, weekly, we also provide two concerts. One on a Wednesday and another on a Saturday. This is done right here on campus in our 600 seater auditorium.
Over the years, maintenance has been done on the auditorium, as needed; however, we have never embarked on a full-scale upgrade to allow our supporters the world-class show they deserve.
As we come out of COVID, these are the upgrades that we are undertaking :
- We are installing a much-needed air-conditioner into the auditorium for those hot summer days.
- It will also include doing a complete overhaul of the lighting system, which we have outgrown as the show has become more extravagant.
- We also want to put in 2 new projectors with motorized screens that will be lowered and raised above the organ chamber as needed, allowing us to create the visual spectacular we so deeply desire.
- We would also like to fully upgrade the sound equipment as the current equipment has gotten outdated and requires repairs and replacement.
- We have an entire manual pipe organ installed in our auditorium that needs to be overhauled.
- Once this is complete, we will use any additional finance to start funding an entire production rig that will allow us to professionally capture the video and audio of our show to release them online for our international fans.
The other part of this great campaign is to start a scholarship fund. It is the heart of the DBCS that any boy with an incredible gift should be able to become a Drakie, regardless of financial status.
We would love to start a completely crowd-funded scholarship fund that would allow boys who would not usually be financially able to afford to come to the DBC the opportunity to become a part of this world-class establishment.
While we are running these two campaigns as one fund, you choose where you would like your contribution to be allocated.
Write Auditorium or Scholarship in the comment section after you’ve placed your contribution, and we will allocate your portion accordingly.
If you have no preference and would like to contribute as a friend of DBC, we will split your share in half and contribute to both funds equally.
Both projects are incredibly close to our heart as it allows us to give our fans the show they deserve, as well as bright futures to some new Drakie boys.
Either way, you can have peace of mind, knowing that your contribution is going to go a LONG way in keeping this national treasure up and running for a long time to come.
