Support Us

As a charitable organisation, Gloucester Choral Society is grateful for and, indeed, dependent upon the dedicated support of our members, audience and sponsors. Unfortunately, hosting a season of top quality choral music does not happen by itself. However, thanks to your support, we have been able to work with some superb musicians, such as The Philharmonia, The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, world-renowned clarinettist Emma Johnson and acclaimed soloist Hye-Youn Lee. This means wonderful concerts for you and an amazing experience for us as singers.

If you would like to support us, there are a number of ways in which you can, such as through our Patrons & Friends scheme, donations, legacies, or simply coming to our concerts and events.
