    Hello RJR Choir Parents and Supporters,

    My name is Shannon Faircloth and I serve as President of the RJR Choral Boosters. Our amazing RJR A Cappella program has been in existence for 21 years. In that time, our mission has remained the exact same; to elevate our RJR family and our entire community through music. Our goal is to perform the most FANTASTIC concerts starring the most FANTASTIC performing artists; OUR CHILDREN. 

    Mr. Settlemyre’s leadership, energy and musical acumen continues to drive our kids to their highest potential. He teaches our young artists to rehearse, to read music, to record and to perform inclusively and harmoniously. We are just grateful to sit in the audience and applaud their accomplishments. 

    “I’m so glad I joined and I’m extremely grateful for the amazing experience that it has been. It feels like family and also feels like the only difference between all of us is our voice parts” Caleb Williams/Senior

    We started the RJR Choral Booster Club because our school budget was just not enough. Not enough to maintain our excellence in musical programming. Not enough to put up our 3 to 4 concerts a year. Not enough to collaborate with other groups. Just not enough. Especially when RJR A Cappella rivals most college programs. Therefore, our Choral Booster Club helps absorb some of these costs. 

    • RJR A Cappella's own website to promote events, streamline ticket sales and donate ****BRAND NEW COMING 2022****

    • Costumes 

    • Accompanying Musicians 

    • Field Trips 

    • NC Honors Chorus 

    • Recording in Studio 

    • Concert Production 

    We should all be prideful that no RJR choral student is left behind for an inability to contribute. 


    This is where you as parents and supporters can help. Our goal for 2022/2023 is to raise an additional $15,000- $20,000 to “booster” our young artists. These funds will continue to provide our students with unique opportunities and exposure to professional talent. Below are some examples of how meaningful a gift could be.  



    Pays for sheet music



    Pays for students required costumes



    Pays for travel to an event or performance



    Pays for an entire concert worth of music



    Pays for professional recording of 1 song

    (R.J. Reynolds Choral Boosters, Inc. is a 501-C3 non-profit organization) Your donation will be listed in our concert’s programs
