In our first three years we have been hugely fortunate in gaining the support of a number of backers who have generously agreed to help support the choir.
By becoming a Friend of Inner Voices you can help us support our young singers as they build the skills that lead them to become professionals or good amateurs whose music-making is at the centre of their lives. The firm financial foundation that you will be providing will enable us to plan beyond the week to week running of the choir and realise additional goals of recording a CD and taking the choir on an overseas tour.
Set out below is a list of the ways to become a supporter, along with an indication of what that support will allow us to do.
Become a Supporter (£20)
This would enable us to buy two anthologies of music for a pupil.
Become a Friend (£100)
Five Friends would allow us to record three more videos with Crown Lane Studios.
Become a Patron (£250)
Two Patrons would cover the entire cost for one year of a place in the choir for a pupil on free school meals.
All Supporters, Friends and Patrons will receive regular newsletters, advanced concert schedules and priority booking for Inner Voices concerts. Friends and Patrons will also receive complimentary tickets to any Inner Voices concerts throughout the year.
