We have only recently become a charity and as such, are still working on a formal ‘Friends and Patrons’ scheme. However, if you would like to help us pioneer this vital part of our development (along with a select group of other supporters) your involvement at this crucial stage, would make a tremendous difference!
Friends of the group donate £60+ per year towards our ongoing activities, whilst our Patrons contribute anything from £240 - £1000 annually. This can be done in monthly instalments or a one-off payment. The cumulative effect of this support enables us to plan more adventurous projects, offer discounted programmes to major venues - who otherwise would not take the risk of booking a young ensemble - and pay our artists the fees they deserve. All our players are working with the top period orchestras in the world. This means our projects are of the highest quality, but we also have to offer competitive fees.
Friends and Patrons receive invitations to attend rehearsals and selected concerts and Patrons join us for special occasions such as CD launch parties, and post-concert celebrations. More importantly, it's a chance to get to know our players and see just how far your support goes. As the scheme has not been formalised yet - we are for example, still waiting to be registered for Gift Aid - please get in touch via the contact form for more information.
