Funding Bodies and Donors
including the Arts Council. Without fees for performers, nothing gets made.
Many of our performances’ audiences and sometimes venues are connected to the web of community choirs around the UK. Thanks to all those who organise performances and workshops, including Claire Anstee, Hanna Lawrence, Bruce Knight, Sheila Macbeth, Nick and Fiona Mills and Roxane Smith.
Composing Residency Hosts
Songs and show structures have been developed in composing residencies funded and hosted by Hawkwood College with Alicia Carey and Katie Lloyd Nunn and by Fundacion Valparaiso with Beatrice Beckett.
Deep thanks to you all!!
