Of course, the best way - and the way we like best - for you to show your support is to buy tickets to our concerts! However, the Southampton Philharmonic Choir also represents an outstanding way for local and regional organisations and businesses to show their support for live music-making in Southampton and South Hampshire. We have a range of sponsorship packages available for business patrons, including advertising in our programmes. Contact Deborah Mitchell, Secretary, via email or on (023) 8061 6532 for details.
Friends of the Southampton Philharmonic Choir
Friends of the Philharmonic Choir help our regular concert goers to support us in a tangible way. We perform choral concerts in the city, supported by professional soloists and orchestras. The cost of putting on these concerts escalates from year to year. Subscriptions from our Friends help us to continue to maintain our high standards and are a resource which we greatly value. To become a Friend all you need to do is to donate a subscription to us of no less than £25.00 a year; you could also Gift Aid your subscription, which would bring us additional income at no further cost to yourself. As a Friend you will be entitled to priority booking at our major concerts and will receive a complimentary copy of the programme for each concert, and your name will be listed in our programmes. To join our group of Friends please contact Julia Maltby or complete and return this form.
Southampton Philharmonic's webshops
Another way of supporting the choir - at no additional cost to yourself - is by going via our webshops when you buy online. For every purchase made in this way, the choir receives valuable commission from the participating retailers. Simply click on the webshop icon in the right-hand bar of this page to be directed to our "department", and then do your shopping just as you usually would. While you're there, why not save the url as a Favourite, so that you don't have to remember to access the webshop via the Choir's website every time? You don't need to be a choir member to help us in this way - anyone can use our webshop, so please encourage friends, family and colleagues to think of us next time they shop online!
