If you wish to support the Society, in addition to coming to our concerts there are three ways to contribute financially;
A non-profit choir, Fernhurst Choral Society is a self funded registered charity, with all revenue directed to the running of the choir. We perform three concerts a year, usually accompanied by professional musicians such as the Downland Sinfonia or Southern Pro Musica and by talented young singer soloists, many of whom are at the start of their professional careers. We also run hugely enjoyable annual “Come & Sing” events.
These activities incur significant expenditure, which is often not covered by membership fees and income from ticket and programme sales and programme advertising. So by financially supporting us you can help FCS to continue to thrive in the future.
Information: You will receive advance information about FCS events and concerts and our participation in the annual Petersfield Musical Festival, to allow you to plan ahead.
Reserved seats: When you buy tickets for an FCS concert, you and your guests will be given reserved seats in prime positions.
Concert Programmes: Friend's names will be listed (or not, If you wish) in the programme for each FCS concert, and you will receive a free concert programme. Corporate Sponsors will receive prominent visibility on our website and advertising in our concert programmes.
Open Rehearsal and Christmas Party: Each year we have an Open Rehearsal in March, where we usually rehearse music for our forthcoming concert at the Petersfield Musical Festival, and an informal Christmas Party/Concert in December. You will be given two free tickets to each of these events.
