We are excited to launch our Brecknock Sinfonia Sponsorship Programme which will provide new opportunities to support our orchestral music and young soloists. This is a chance for Friends – and others – to donate something extra and become a Patron. We are tremendously grateful to the Friends for their encouragement with this new venture, and for all their ongoing support.
The options to take part in the Brecknock Sinfonia Sponsorship Programme are varied. Sponsorship could provide one-off or ongoing financial assistance towards paying a soloist, the conductor, or key professional players in the orchestra. Other donations could help in many ways – building up our Young Soloists Fund, or sponsoring a whole concert, for example.
We are lucky that most of our musicians are keen to play with the Brecknock Sinfonia for the pleasure of being a part of the orchestra, but we do pay some fees – to our conductor, and to professional players who rely on earning a living from such work. This includes the orchestral leader, our string section principals, and a few key wind and percussion players. All of these people contribute hugely to the vibrant success of the Brecknock Sinfonia and ensure we maintain high standards. Adding a soloist to the programme brings something extra to a concert, and can do a lot to help young players at the start of their careers, but it comes at extra cost. Additional support will enable us to feature more soloists, and to explore more varied and ambitious programmes.
We have compiled a list of some sponsorship opportunities, with suggested donations. If you would like to sponsor us, you can do this by sending an email to email@example.com . You could follow one of the options below in full or in part, offer your own sponsorship ideas, or make a general donation. You might want to sponsor as an individual or as a group of Friends (or friends). Sponsorship and donations over £50 will make you a Patron of Brecknock Sinfonia. This can be publicly acknowledged, or anonymous. We are enormously gratefully for all donations received and for your ongoing support to keep music live in Mid-Wales.
With thanks, Brecknock Sinfonia Sponsorship Programme
