This year Tenebrae is launching a Christmas Appeal running throughout Advent (27th November – 24th December) to raise £5000 to support their Choral Development programme. This programme incorporates the choir’s Associate Artists scheme and education partnerships which, as Tenebrae celebrates its 15th anniversary this season, proudly heralds a new chapter in the choir’s commitment to the development of emerging vocal talent.
Tenebrae’s Associate Artists are some of the most highly-skilled young professional choral singers in the UK. They receive mentoring from Nigel together with both live and recorded ensemble performance experience through active involvement with Tenebrae’s engagements, which includes the competion of our recording project with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and an international anniversary tour. Associates also receive training in music pedagogy and go on to put this into practice through a series of partnerships, in particular with the London Youth Choir and Music Centres London which form the heart of Tenebrae’s education and community engagement work. Tenebrae is dedicated to providing a series of workshops of the highest artistic quality to hundreds of young people from all backgrouds. The choir’s partners work closely with local education authorities and schools in identifying children who would particularly benefit from the provision of this inspiring music tuition.
You can donate £10 by texting TENE002 to 70191.
Should you feel inclined to donate £100 or more, Tenebrae would be delighted to credit you through our Individual Giving scheme, which would allow you to receive exclusive benefits and develop a closer relationship with the choir.
Tenebrae believe that young people from all backgrounds deserve the opportunity to be involved in music making of the highest quality, and we hope you will help us in realising our goal.
