The cost of running Chamber Players greatly exceeds the income from the course. It is not a good business model, but we carry on with this because we believe that opportunities such as Chamber Players should be available to as many pupils as possible.
We overcome this shortfall in a variety of ways:
At no extra cost to you: If you ever purchase music online (I realise we should support our local music shops first, but some things may be easier to get or only available as an online download now), here is a link to SheetMusicPlus . 8% of sales through this direct link will be generated back into the Chamber Players fund. It may sound small, but over time it could accumulate to help a pupil or two.
Other ways to support Chamber Players.
.Every year, we hold a series of concerts, which are not only inspiring and enjoyable for everyone, but all proceeds go directly towards the Chamber Players scholarship fund.
. There are a number of charities and private individuals who sponsor a pupil. We would love to encourage more people to do this if they can. Please do get in contact with us via the contacts page if you think that this would be something you could do.
. If you have a business which you think would benefit from advertising in one of our concert programmes, please do also get in touch. For every advert placed, a proportion of the cost of the event is covered, and so more of the proceeds can go towards the scholarship fund.
For our 10th Anniversary concert we have a Crowdfunding page set up. Not only to support this initial project, but any funds remaining from this event will be put into the Scholarship fund for future pupils to attend Chamber Players courses over the next 10 years. Any donations towards this will help.
