After God, Adoramus owes its success principally to the encouragement of its audiences and its Friends, those who have spread the word to their own friends and associates, and offered their generous financial support.
By supporting Adoramus, a registered charity, you can help us plan for the future, enable us to take on exciting new ministry opportunities, projects that, while perhaps not financially rewarding, will allow us to communicate the Christian faith and continue to serve the church and wider community with music of the highest standard.
Your support will make a difference enabling you to share in a special relationship with Adoramus, receive updates about our work, and become part of a family of supporters who share a mutual love of music and passion for the work we do.
However Adoramus recognises that you can do far more for us through your generous support than we can do for you.
We offer Friends a range of benefits. Depending on how you are going to support us, some or all of these will apply:
Discounted ticket prices
Each Friend is offered two discounted tickets for every concert.
You will receive a pass for yourself and a guest to the Adoramus Friends Receptions held during the interval at selected concerts. Here you will be offered a glass of wine and nibbles and you will have the opportunity to mingle with the soloists and invited VIPs.
Our newsletter provides advance concert information, spotlights on our soloists and news for prayer support.
Where we can we will reserve preferential seating at selected concerts so you will have one of the best views.
For continued support and regular attendance to our concerts we will reward you with a Free Concert ticket to be used for selected concerts.
How to become a Friend…
You can become a Friend of Adoramus for as little as an annual donation of £45 per person or £65 for a couple. This will be a valued and much appreciated contribution to the day-to-day running expenses of Adoramus.
Greater financial support from a monthly gift can be used:
£15 per month ~ Percussion and timpani hire: average cost per concert
£20 per month ~ Would cover publicity and promotion for one concert
£30 per month ~ Would cover a concert’s average cost of choral and orchestral scores
£40 per month ~ In a European outreach year, would support a student musician taking part
£60 per month ~ Would cover the average cost of venue hire for one concert
Adoramus has been fortunate to have been left a legacy which has made a huge difference to our outreach. In 2016 we were able to perform a free concert that reached a new audience, increased our connections, inspired us to perform more challenging works and use external soloists: a great time was had by all! Leaving a gift to Adoramus in your Will can not only give you profound satisfaction in knowing that your support will live on into the future and benefit future generations, but can also make the burden of inheritance tax on your estate lighter. Every contribution, large or small, is deeply appreciated and will make a difference to the future of Adoramus.
Giving a music lover an Adoramus ‘FRIEND’ membership is the ideal gift for just £45 per year or you can buy gift vouchers for as little as £10 that they can use to purchase Adoramus tickets or merchandise. Enquire at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
