The cost of presenting large-scale choral concerts with an orchestra and professional soloists is very high. Whilst our singing members' subscriptions cover our rehearsal costs and overheads, we rely on you - our friends, our audience, donors and various fundraising initiatives to finance our performances. Ticket sales alone cannot fully cover our concert expenses, and the recent months of covid restrictions have severely limited our fundraising efforts.
To help us to present the high-quality performances that you expect and love, and that so much enrich the musical life of our town, please consider making a donation to the choir. Any amount, small or large, can make a big difference! For example:
£10 would buy a presentation bouquet for a soloist
£50 would largely cover the hire charge for a set of orchestral music parts for a concert
