Supporting The Cecilia Consort

The Cecilia Consort is an independent choir which relies entirely upon its members and supporters to fund all concerts and public performances.

We were due to give a 30th anniversary concert at Douai Abbey on 14th November but, due to the pandemic, the concert had to be cancelled. It would be a great pity for this milestone to pass without marking it somehow so we have decided to mark the occasion with a 30th Anniversary Album recording instead: a "Best of the Cecilia Consort" if you will. 

If you enjoy our music and would like to help, we invite your contribution, however small, to help us raise the funds to record the album in the Spring or Summer of 2021. You can donate on our Good Exchange page, and every contribution will be matched by the Greenham Common trust.

There are also several other ways in which you could support the choir. You could become a Friend of Cecilia, volunteer as a helper at one of our concerts, you could ‘like’ our Facebook page and help us to advertise our (future!) performances by putting up posters in your neighbourhood. 

Whichever option you choose, your help and support is very much appreciated. Thank you!

 

  • Who are the Friends of Cecilia and how do I join?

    The Friends of Cecilia are our supporters (some of whom have sung with the choir in the past) who like to be kept informed about forthcoming events. Becoming one of our ‘friends’ means receiving our newsletters about future concerts and social events, including open workshops and our very popular Cecilia Christmas Dinner. If you volunteer to help at one of our concerts e.g. selling programmes and tickets on the door, you will be offered free entry to that particular event. If you would like to become a Friend of Cecilia, please e-mail our Secretary, Libbie Mead at libbie.mead@btinternet.com

  • What is involved in helping at a concert?

    There are always lots of jobs to be done on a concert day. We need people to sell tickets and programmes on the door, direct traffic in the car park and serve refreshments during the interval. If you have experience of writing concert reviews, we'd also love to hear from you. If you wish to volunteer, please email our Chairman, Lucy Makin at makin_lucy@hotmail.com.

  • How do I donate?
