Why we need donations
Our concerts are expensive to stage. Our aim is to do justice to great works of choral music, and to present them to the highest standard we can. The Choral Society provides the chorus but in addition we must hire professional soloists and an orchestra. And for some of the works we perform, this can be quite a large orchestra.
Most of our concerts do not cover their costs, and our fundraising is to cover this gap and to enable us to maintain the high musical standards that we and our audiences enjoy. Our repertoire is inevitably limited by what we can afford, but both singers and audiences appreciate us singing as broad a repertoire as possible.
Choral Society members pay a subscription which funds all the non-concert running costs of the society, and which also provides a small surplus to subsidise our concerts.
In addition we rely on grants, sponsorship and donations. These enable us to put on more adventurous concerts and to broaden our repertoire, while keeping ticket prices affordable.
Please give generously to enable this great musical tradition to survive and flourish in Stratford-upon-Avon.
