Support our Royal Northern Sinfonia 60th Anniversary Appeal
Royal Northern Sinfonia are currently celebrating their 60th anniversary. The anniversary season was launched back in September with a weekend of activity that reflected the diverse characteristics of the 21st century chamber orchestra, ranging from a rock concert with Maximo Park to the first public performance from a new ensemble which featured both disabled and non-disabled musicians in RNS Moves.
As part of the orchestra’s anniversary celebrations we are appealing for contributions to help support the work of the orchestra at Sage Gateshead and to widen the community offer; continuing to reach those who may not be able to travel to Sage Gateshead and inspiring the next generation of classical music fans.
Whilst we receive funding from Arts Council England, Gateshead Council and others, we are increasingly dependent on contributions from members of the public to support our work.
With a target of £60,000 to be met by the end of the 18/19 classical season (June 2019), the appeal is for donations to either mark the year the orchestra was founded with a monthly direct debit of £19.58 or a donation of £60 to help celebrate the 60th anniversary. As an incentive, anyone who donates £60 or more to the appeal is entered into a prize draw. The winner is given the opportunity for a quartet/quintet to play in their living room or local community centre and the chance to chat to the musicians afterwards. Donate Now.
Last year Royal Northern Sinfonia performed 53 concerts in communities and across the globe and the year ahead is another busy one for the orchestra with not only a programme of concerts at Sage Gateshead but also performances and music education activity across venues, schools and community centres in the region and wider afield. This range of work is something the orchestra has always taken pleasure in delivering.
Royal Northern Sinfonia is the region’s chamber orchestra with a global reputation. Whatever gift you give today, will make a difference to their future. Thank you.
