Support Us

The Friends of The Marian Consort enable our programme of concerts, recordings and education and outreach work to flourish.

We receive no regular public funding and rely on the generosity of our loyal supporters. The support of our Friends is a continual source of encouragement and inspiration, and allows us to take our music to an ever-wider audience.

Become a Friend and youll get a unique insight into the inner workings of the ensemble, from exclusive access to rehearsals and music videos, to invitations to events and opportunities to meet our singers.

Anyone can be a Friend. Whether you give £5 a month or £1000 a year, you help us take our art to audiences across the world, inspire and mentor people, and breathe life into music old and new.

Donors of £600 or more can also choose to give to our funds dedicated to recording and commissioning. Get more perks, like meeting the composer or sitting in on recording sessions, get your name printed in the score, and tickets to the world première. 

If you have any questions about becoming a Friend, please contact us.

The Marian Consort is a not for profit Charitable Incorporated Organisation, registered charity no. 1188269.
