Ways in which you can
Bringing together top-flight musicians for our concerts in leading venues is extremely expensive. Ticket sales alone can’t cover the costs without becoming prohibitive, and we rely on the generous support of individuals, companies and organisations so we can continue to delight our audiences and keep the symphonic choral repertoire alive for New Zealand audiences.
Thank you to all our regular supporters and audience members for your generous and very much appreciated contribution to our world .
If you appreciate what we do, in addition to coming to concerts, here are some of the other ways of the ways you might consider getting involved.
Whatever amount works for you works for us.
By choosing to give a regular monthly donation, you will be helping us to plan ahead with a steady stream of income to rely on.
