It depends on the number of singers and your choice of music, but the suggested donation can be as little as £200.

Bach Mass in B minor "...a stunning performance of Bach's monumental Mass in B minor. The rapt attention of the audience and its exuberant applause spoke volumes."

African Sanctus "...their performance of African Sanctus by David Fanshawe was electrifying. The singers were wonderful, especially the choirs' sopranos rendering war dance notes."
