Join The Commissioning Circle

To join The Commissioning Circle, we ask people to pledge £1,000 or more a year for at least two years. In the first year, you will support the project's research, development and learning process. In the second year, your gift will enable our performers to take to the stage, alongside professionals, and present to the world their brand new opera. You can give in one, or many instalments and you can join a syndicate with other people. Please find below more information about our next production, based on Schubert's Winter Journey, and how you can bring it to life, in our Commissioning Circle information booklet.

Why you are so important

There is substantial evidence that the arts make lives better and we believe that it is a fundamental human right to access them. We need your support now so that we can help change even more lives through music. 

We can’t continue our work without the generosity of our individual supporters, so please donate today. Regular gifts give us the security to plan and think creatively about our future, and make a real, ongoing difference. Help us keep transforming the lives of some of the country's most vulnerable and socially excluded people.
