Host of Angels

We truly value the loyalty and support of our audiences. Through your attendance, you are already doing one of the most important things you can for us by providing audiences for ‘live’ music.  But, you may not know that we are a registered charity (no.1004086) and that box office income from sold out concerts often falls many thousands of pounds short of the cost of the concert.

And you do you know that outside of the concert hall we run projects for children in schools, children and adults hospitals, community choirs and our own youth training choirs.

With our funding from Birmingham City Council now just 20% of the grant offered in 2010-11, we need your help more than ever to maintain high quality concerts, to research and commission, to nurture young singers, and to engage tens of thousands of people each year in singing activities.

We would like to invite you to go one step further and Give the gift of singing by becoming a member of our Host of Angels.

Thank you, from everyone at Ex Cathedra, and on behalf of the tens of thousands of people we engage each year in singing activities.

It is great to know that so many of you share our belief in the power of music, and especially of singing, to enrich our lives and the lives of those around us. Thank you for all the support you give.
