Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”). Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies.

As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.
Statement of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
The mission of Consonare Choral Community is to build community through choral music in Connecticut. We believe that our mission is most effectively fulfilled through a commitment to inclusiveness as a core value and practice.
We maintain that building and sustaining diversity requires an ongoing commitment to inclusion that must find full expression in our organizational culture, values, norms, and behaviors. Throughout our work, we support diversity across all lines of difference, including age, economic circumstance, ethnicity, sex, race, range of ability, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity/expression. We aim to lead by example, viewing and encouraging diversity as a fundamental and abiding strength of community arts organizations.
Consonare Choral Community recognizes that its effectiveness will be enhanced and its mission well-served when the practice of inclusion is reflected in all aspects of the organization and specifically when:
Our Board of Directors reflects the rich and growing diversity of Eastern Connecticut.
We create and implement programs using our awareness of cultural differences and treat our musicians and audiences with respect. We seek input from our musicians and audiences and strive to engage diverse stakeholders to ensure that our programs are inclusive.
POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Our commitment to inclusiveness is evident in our organizational policies and procedures, as part of our strategic plan, and within our organizational goals.
Our recruitment and hiring practices reflect a commitment to the value of inclusion. We foster an environment that respects each individual, seeks and values diverse perspectives, and ensures that all employees and volunteers can actively contribute to fulfilling the organization’s mission.
We share our commitment to inclusion as a core value and practice with current and potential donors and encourage donors to consider and embrace these values.
Consonare Choral Community hopes that its demonstrated commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion represents an organizational standard for the nonprofit sector.
