Become a Friend or Patron of Durham Choral Society
If you are often in our audience and enjoy our concerts,
have you ever thought of becoming a Friend or Patron?
There is no doubt that the loyal support of our Friends and Patrons and their financial contribution is invaluable to a choir such as ours. Friends have told us they appreciate the ‘glorious music-making’ and ‘so much fulfilling enjoyment’ .
We are keen to enlarge our community of Friends and Patrons to support the choir and we are introducing the new Patrons Scheme for the 2023-24 Season.
Friends are supporters who choose to make an annual subscription to benefit the Society. For the coming Season 2023-2024 the subscription will be at least £30. On completion of a gift aid form, this increases the benefit to the Society by about £5.50*.
Patrons are supporters of the Arts who choose to show their support for the Society by making a one-off gift, currently at least £400. On completion of a Gift Aid Form, this increases the benefit to the Society by about £80*.
As a thank you for your support and generosity you will receive:
Discounted tickets for you
The option to buy tickets for your guests at full price
Invitations to Society social functions and concert receptions
Recognition in concert programmes and on the DCS Website (unless anonymity is requested)
A personal welcome in Durham Cathedral
A free concert programme for each Friend
Bi-annual newsletter with Concert reminder.
Complimentary ticket for the Christmas Concert
* Subject to HMRC policy
Please note that Friend and Patron Status are not transferable.
