Your support will allow us to flourish in our own right. It would free us from being a 'choir for hire' and instead give us the opportunity to develop our own innovative and creative programmes. This would help us to our goal of becoming the UK’s preeminent symphony chorus, as well as finding a new and bigger audience for our work. Thank you – we look forward to welcoming you at our concerts
