Sponsors, Advertisers and Grants
The choir welcomes financial support from business and grant-giving bodies, also support in kind. We recognise that this support is one side of a partnership, and that we are giving back something in return – be it acknowledging the spirit in which the support is given, or achieving the project that was the focus of the support. We like to go further and continue a relationship with these partners, and to see how we can help our sponsors, adding value to their own programmes. These might be community-oriented, arts-focused, or whatever they choose, and we look for synergies with them.
We aim to participate in local, regional and national initiatives to raise the profile of choral music and live music-making of all sorts. We want to help younger people to follow an interest in music, and to bring music to people who can’t get out to concerts and entertainments.
We believe that music is an important expression of civic identity and local pride.
We also think that music can provide variety and stimulus to the workplace without disrupting core activities.
We are extremely grateful for support already received and would like to acknowledge the following grants and sponsorships since 2010:
