Vox Anima Chamber Choir relies on the support of donors and sponsors to help their ambitious development work and community engagement.
The choir is always keen to welcome new supporters - you can give support in a number of ways:
- become a sponsor at one of the levels listed below
- become a monthly / quarterly or annual donor
- become a corporate sponsor with a mutually agreed package
The five levels of sponsorship available listed below last for one year and follow the academic year - 01 September to 31 August - although sponsors are welcome at any time throughout the year. Sponsors will be listed in each VACC concert programme and will be acknowledged here on the website and on social media outlets (with sponsor consent).
This level of sponsorship is known as a Commission Sponsor. As the choir continues to promote the music of living composers, there will be at least one commissioned work per year.
It may be that more than one Platinum Sponsor is required per commission - and the choir therefore welcomes numerous Platinum Sponsors each year. This would make a wonderful gift to commemorate a special anniversary or occasion!
This level of sponsorship is an Outreach Sponsor and will support targeted community engagement through educational workshops, support of young composers, and tours for the choir promoting cultural exchange and collaboration.
At this level, there is also an opportunity to join with other potential sponsors to make a two / three or more person Diamond sponsor consortium. Donations of any amount can be combined to make a Diamond Sponsor level.
This level of sponsorship supports the voice parts and encourages the ongoing musical and vocal development of the singers through sectional rehearsals and retreats/workshops.
The Ruby level of sponsorship is dedicated to the support of the incomparable collaborative artist, Richard Hammond-Hall, who is central to the music-making of the choir.
Richard's commitment to VACC requires that he offer significant amounts of his time to travel, rehearsals and performances.
The Silver level of sponsorship is vital to the ongoing work of running the choir. Rehearsal venues, concert venues, music purchase, performing rights fees, programme design and printing are all ongoing expenses that provide significant challenges for such a small group of singers. This foundational support ensures that VACC may continue its quest to be a recognisable and unique voice in the UK choral world.
