Donations are key to unlocking money and music for Ensemble Cymru

 

Chamber music charity, Ensemble Cymru, are celebrating 15 years of bringing high quality chamber music performances to communities across north Wales and to mark this special occasion, they’re asking you to play your part in their Big Give Christmas Challenge.

The Bangor based classical music group has been chosen from thousands of other charities to take part in the UK’s largest online match funding campaign, the Big Give, which doubles donations which are made during a 72 hour window next week.

A pledge pot of £5,000 has already been raised by Ensemble Cymru but this money can only be unlocked through online donations made via the Big Give website www.thebiggive.org.uk from 12pm on Tuesday 29th November through until 12pm on Friday 2nd December. So for every pound that is donated, another £1 is unlocked from the pledge pot – doubling the original donation.

big-give-postcard-2016But money isn’t the only thing that will be unlocked through online donations; Ensemble Cymru’s star musicians, including Royal Harpist Anne Denholm, have recorded special personal messages and performances which will be released on the charity’s Facebook and Twitter pages as donations targets are reached.

In addition to the online music, Ensemble Cymru will also be holding a drop-in session at:

  • Venue Cymru in Llandudno on Tuesday 29th November 11:30am – 1pm
  • Wednesday 30th November, 10:30am -12pm at Pontio in Bangor

There will be ‘donations stations’ set-up where supporters can give online, plus music from Ensemble Cymru musicians.

Speaking about Ensemble Cymru’s plans for the future, its Artistic Director, Peryn Clement-Evans, said:

“Throughout the past 15 years, we’ve always been spurred on by the generosity of the public. With it, tens of thousands of people of all ages in Wales have been able to experience live performances of really inspiring music. For the next 15 years we want to raise the bar with an aim to unlock this music for hundreds of thousands more people of all ages in all parts of Wales, whoever and wherever they are be they in a community, a shopping centre, a chapel, a school hall or a concert hall. On behalf of all of us I’d just like to thank everybody so much for whatever they’re able to give to help us as we begin the task of realising that dream.”
