Come to our concerts
Other ways to support us
Our aim is to give local people opportunities to study and practise glorious choral music with a professional Music Director, and to perform it with professional musicians and soloists. Through our concerts, we also aim to foster the appreciation of such music in the wider community. We rely heavily on our membership subscriptions and concert ticket sales. However, the costs of putting on major choral works (with several soloists and instrumentalists) are substantial. The Society welcomes financial support from individuals and businesses to enable us to maintain (and indeed increase) the number and quality of such events. Here are some ways you could help us:
Advertise in our concert programmes
If you are involved in a local business, why not advertise it in one of our concert programmes? Our rates are very reasonable. To advertise in this way, contact the Treasurer at this address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Sponsor a concert
We would also be very pleased to hear from any local business or individual who would like to sponsor a particular concert. You might wish to support the concert generally, or to sponsor a particular performer, e.g a soloist. Rates are negotiable, and the Society would be pleased to make due acknowledgement in concert programmes. If you are interested, please contact the Treasurer: email@example.com
Make a donation
Donations to the Society are always very welcome, and can be made by cheque or online bank transfer.
Since we are a registered charity (Registered Charity Number 1152661), do please Gift Aid your donation if you are eligible. This increases the value of donations at no extra cost to you. At the current basic rate of tax (20%), the Society can claim an extra 25p for every £1 donated. Print out a Gift Aid Declaration and send it to the Treasurer.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for up-to-date address and/or bank details.
You can also donate online via the Give As You Live website. This site operates in a similar way to easyfundraising.org.uk, as explained below, but also offers the facility to make single or regular donations. Please click on the logo below to be directed to the society's page.
