The Big Give update – see how much we’ve raised already!

Ensemble Cymru are delighted to have been given generous pledges totalling £3800.

What’s next? The next stage in the challenge is the donation phase which begins Thursday 4th December.

What does this mean? During this phase (from Thursday 4th December, 10am), when a donation is made, 75% of it will be matched from the pledge, the remainder coming from the charity champion fund. This is an exciting time to donate as you can witness your donation make a bigger impact on Ensemble Cymru as it doubles!

 What have your donations achieved in the past?

Do you remember the success of Ensemble Cymru’s production of Pedr a’r Blaidd (Peter and the Wolf)?

Spring 2014 saw an orchestra of 30 musicians perform Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf in Welsh, for the first time! It was narrated by the Welsh actor, Rhys Ifans and screen images were created by the children’s illustrator, Marc Vyvyan Jones.
The musicians were joined on stage by S4C star, Donna Direidi who encouraged the audience to get involved with singing and exploring the sounds of the orchestra.
Ensemble Cymru were able to bring this story to life and provide its TV debut. Find out more about Peter and the Wolf. 

Ensemble Cymru are encouraging you to donate to us through The Big Give (from 10am, Thursday 4th December) so that we can continue works like this and make The Bach in the Subways 2015 just as successful, if not more!
