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 need your help. Even after 15 years, it cannot continue without your support. The French association which runs the festival & The Musique-Cordiale Trust, the British charity which supports it, need you for this campaign. Between us, we must hit a £50,000 annual target for EXTRA FUNDS before next summer – and preferably earlier to give us the resources to plan ahead – and make savings – for 2020. Thank you to those who have already helped 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?
A huge amount of year-round, voluntary work is involved to organise the Festival. Most of this is done by a team of dedicated volunteers. Although supported and valued by its participants and audiences, both locally and from all over Europe, Musique Cordiale NEEDS TO SUPPLEMENT ITS INCOME from ticket sales, subscriptions, some hard-won local funding in the face of shrinking public budgets and the generosity of a few private donors ad trusts. It is 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 !
