For an annual donation of £25 for a single membership or £40 for two (though we would, of course, be delighted to receive more!) you will receive the following:

  • One Friend's ticket for each concert at £2 off the standard price (Two per concert for joint members);
  • A complimentary programme, with Friends names printed (with permission);
  • Entry into an annual prize draw to win 2 free tickets to a future concert;
  • An annual newsletter;

Friends’ donations help to bolster the choir’s finances and encourage us to be more ambitious in planning future ventures.

Messages from our Patrons 

Sarah and I are extremely honoured to have been asked to be joint Patrons of Guildford Chamber Choir.   We have thoroughly enjoyed the two recent concerts under the baton of Max Barley.  Wonderful singing and music in two such special and beautiful churches, Holy Trinity and St Nicolas, Guildford.  You have delighted all of us and we look forward to many inspirational concerts in the future.  We are very fortunate to have such a talented choir in Guildford and I know we all appreciate the time you spend in rehearsals producing this beautiful music.  

(Mr and Mrs Michael More-Molyneux, Loseley Park)


I was greatly privileged to serve as Principal Conductor of the Guildford Chamber Choir for eleven years. The choir is committed to the highest standards of performance, and to presenting a diverse and innovative repertoire. The significant sum of money raised by the choir for local charities is remarkable, and the achievement of the singers in communicative music-making is immense.

(Prof Steven Grahl, Christ Church Oxford)


Other ways of sponsoring us

All donations, small or large, are always most gratefully received as they help to defray costs and enable us to put on concerts that we would not necessarily be able to fund ourselves. For example, a donation of £250-£350 would help us pay for a professional organist to accompany us; £150-£250 would pay for one orchestral player or professional singer. As above, we can give as much or as little profile to the sponsor as required.
