Each year Chester Bach Singers puts on four main concerts, one of which is a large-scale work with orchestra, performed in Chester Cathedral. Other concerts, often involving soloists and instrumentalists, are held at a variety of different venues in the Chester area. The cost over the year of providing performances to the high standard for which Chester Bach Singers is known throughout the Northwest is considerable. The professional fees for soloists, the cost of an orchestra and other instrumentalists as well as the substantial hire charges for the Cathedral, other concert venues and rehearsal rooms are such that ticket sales cover only a small proportion of the total costs. The remainder is met through a combination of choir members’ subscriptions, grants, sponsorship and the choir’s own fund-raising activities.
Chester Bach Singers would be grateful to any private individuals or representatives of the industrial/commercial sector who would like to become patrons by making a donation to help uphold and develop excellence in choral performance. Private individuals are asked for a minimum subscription of £50 annually and Industrial/Commercial patrons for an amount at their discretion. Patrons’ names will appear in the programme for each concert and they will receive a complimentary ticket for any two of the season’s concerts. In addition, patrons will receive up-to-date news about the choir throughout the year.
