Do you see yourself as a Patron of the Arts?

Do you want to help us continue to sing concerts of the highest quality with top soloists and orchestras? Maybe you want acknowledgement in our programmes, pre-concert receptions, ticket discounts, to get the best seats and see how we work in rehearsals. Or maybe you want to contribute to our commission fund to help us continue to bring accessible new music to the choral repertoire?

We offer a choice of becoming a Friend, Patron, Benefactor or a member of the Conductor’s Circle.

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 are 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 living composers by commissioning new works. Over the last ten years we have had support from some 30 trusts, foundations and local authorities.

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.

Hertfordshire Chorus is registered as a charity (number 281627) with the Charity Commission.
