Friends

The Friends of EAC Scheme is being re-launched for 2018/2019, with an exciting new format. Please email friendsteam@englisharts.org to register your interest.

Friends of the English Arts Chorale

 

Do you enjoy attending concerts
and other social activities?

Would you like to contribute to
the achievements
of a thriving and friendly choir
that performs music of outstanding quality?


As the EAC performing and recording programmes continue to develop, we are also delighted to be expanding the role of our Friends, the heart of our audience. The Friends are a group of like-minded people who enjoy being involved in concerts and part of our wider choir family.

With our latest CD now on sale and our 40th anniversary season to look forward to, including a performance at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall on the South Bank, this is an exceptional time for the EAC. Contributions from Friends will enable us to employ professional orchestral players and soloists, and are vital for us to perform outstanding concerts.

The English Arts Chorale is an ambitious choir based in Reigate, Surrey, which performs in world-class venues such as St John’s College, Cambridge, and London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, as well as serving its local community with events in Surrey and Sussex churches. Our last season included performances of Britten’s War Requiem in Winchester Cathedral and Tewkesbury Abbey; and premieres of Paul Carr’s Stabat Mater in Reigate and Cambridge. A recording of the Stabat Mater is included on our latest CD, ‘Radiance’.

 

Your contributions will help us develop and present
our acclaimed programme of concerts,
learning events and recording projects.


We hope you would like to join us and
become part of our thriving and happy community.
