WHY BCU NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT

By supporting our concerts you will not only be promoting the appreciation and enjoyment of choral music in Bolton but also helping to encourage:

• the local bands and professional orchestras who regularly accompany us
• the highly talented soloists we engage and especially
• those budding, new composers whose works we choose to include in our repertoire along with the established favourites of concert audiences

You will be helping to keep the choral tradition alive.

PROMOTING A CONCERT IS COSTLY-

A solo singer or musician costs from £200 to £500 depending on their experience.

A professional orchestra of say 25 players costs at least £4000- £5000.

Music hire, including orchestral scores averages over £600 per concert.

Then there is the hire of the venue, rehearsal room costs- the list is never- ending……
