The “DWS” Fund for New Choral Music is an endowment fund created in 2004 to extend the vital legacy of the DWS for generations to come.  It is housed at the American Composers Forum in St. Paul, Minnesota, an organization that shares Dale’s passion for contemporary work.  His work continues through this fund, and fulfills the common missions of both the Forum and the Dale Warland Singers to support new music and the artists who create it.

Annual proceeds from this permanently endowed fund are used to award commissions of new work through an awards program at Chorus America.  As the endowment grows, we hope expand the fund’s purpose to include performances, recording costs, and support for Dale’s mentorship to young conductors and workshops for choruses and composers.

To make a gift to this fund, you may send a check directly to the Forum at the address below or contact Bonnie Marshall at the Forum to discuss giving options.
