Our Nonprofit Mission
Cedille Chicago, NFP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to producing classical recordings of the highest quality featuring outstanding musicians from Chicago. Our purpose is to enhance the world's catalog of recorded music by sharing these artists’ explorations of new and under-represented compositions and documenting their important interpretations of standard repertoire in uniquely innovative programs. The extensive dissemination of these recordings is designed to bring our artists to a worldwide audience — thus enhancing their reputations and careers — and to benefit as great a listening public as possible.
With our mission of widely disseminating recordings in mind, Cedille Chicago invests heavily in marketing and promotion of the recordings. Sales cover only a small fraction of our expenses. We rely on the generous contributions of classical music lovers to support the rest.
For more than two decades, Cedille has worked tirelessly to fulfill its mission. Once a recording is in print, it will remain perpetually available. Unlike other record labels, we never delete recordings from our catalog. Each CD is intended as a permanent addition to the world's catalog of classical music.
With your support, we will continue recording and producing classical recordings of the highest quality featuring outstanding musicians from Chicago. Please consider donating today.
