GRANT AWARDING BODIES
We feel we are in a privileged position. Not only can we afford to support our personal involvement but we experience first-hand the importance of group singing to mental and physical wellbeing. The arts is constantly evolving and we want to share the benefits of group singing with our local community and bring new choral music to the wider world.We present a diverse programme (Baroque through to present day – Jazz and Classical) and are committed to educating the next generation of singers and concertgoers. In particular we collaborate with schools, run community singing projects and encourage of living composers by commissioning new works. Over the last ten years we have had support from some 30 trusts, foundations and local authorities. Our thanks go to the following grant bodies

The choir has an annual budget of around £120,000 to support its concert and associated activities. Revenue is raised primarily from members’ subscriptions and ticket sales however in order to bring the highest quality music to our audiences, to involve adults and children in our local community and to bring new works to the choral world we rely on additional fundraising.
