Supporting Hereford Choral Society through concert sponsorship

Concert sponsorship: individual supporters

Anyone can sponsor a concert – Friend or Patron, choir member, family, or just someone who loves classical music. Supporting a performance is a very special way of marking a major personal or family event.

The cost of concert sponsorship is £1,500. To mark your gift, we offer complimentary tickets and hospitality for the sponsored performance, public recognition of your sponsorship (if you’re happy with this) and fee-free advance booking and discounts on tickets for our concerts during that season. We know that different aspects will appeal to different people, so we will talk over with you the combination that would suit you best.

If you think this might be for you, just contact the Sponsorship Secretary.

Concert sponsorship is a big outlay for one person, so we offer a range of other sponsorship options and we’ll also consider the possibility of shared sponsorship between two individuals.
