2021 Essential & urgent fund-raising “Revival” campaign!

Admirable Aspirations – a 16-year record of valuable achievement in Pan-European musical and cultural exchange & education – a Labour of Love

If you value Musique Cordlale for its unique international festival and its orchestral academy for young musical talent – or its choral & singing courses, concerts and events in France and Britain,  we now desperately need your help!
Even after 16 years, it cannot continue without your support. Covid-19 left us with no income from choir subscriptions or ticket sales in 2020. We also lost almost all the expected subvention (grant-aid) support from French public funds for culture. We had applied for these for staging the musical events which we had to cancel. We reimbursed what we had received; yet many costs still have had to be met regularly as months have gone by without income. We are being brave and creative in 2021 but, with limited lead-time, ongoing and unpredictable travel restrictions and infection rates, it’s going to be VERY difficult to put on even a reduced festival, especially in Britain where we have much less history and fewer loyal supporters. In the past we have begun planning for the next festival as soon as the last one is over. Selecting the repertoire, designing the Programme, engaging artists, recruiting  singers and musicians and enrolling volunteers and students takes months of advance planning, as do the arrangements for travel, accommodation, booking venues, catering and publicising our concerts. The French Musique Cordiale association, which  usually runs the festival, & The Musique-Cordiale Trust, the British charity which supports it and which is also arranging this year’s events in Britain, need you for this campaign. Between us, we must hit a £50,000 annual target – to give us the resources to plan ahead, reshape, to make savings and to re-emerge, probably in new forms but with our established emphasis on musical quality, development of young talent and European cultural exchange. Thank you to those who have helped us in the past by donating, pledging or raising money or by arranging events and inviting your friends to help. WHY NOT BECOME A FRIEND or DONOR? Or SPONSOR an event or musician? The continuing Covid restrictions have also prevented us from holding our usual pre-festival Musical Soirée, a vital fund-raiser that for 15 years enabled us to pay our way.
A huge amount of year-round, voluntary work is involved to organise the Festival and even the one-off outdoor concert that we managed in England in 2020 and the limited series of mainly-outdoor events we have now planned for 2021. Most of this is done by a team of dedicated volunteers, including several of our musicians and singers. Although normally supported and valued by its participants and audiences, both locally and from all over Europe, Musique Cordiale NEEDS TO REPLACE ITS LOST 2020 INCOME from ticket sales, subscriptions, some hard-won local funding in the face of shrinking public budgets for culture – Even in other years, it can be an enormous struggle to cover the costs of bringing over 100 musicians and singers from across the continent to the Pays de Fayence and accommodating and sustaining them – as well as working them hard to achieve great music together.
Please SUPPORT US: details HERE And look out for our musical fund-raising events in Britain and France whenever we can again manage them.  We thank you for your support and understanding. In some form and at a suitable time, we promised to be back, in small steps and stages. Meanwhile, Stay healthy and safe.
