Weʼre raising £2,000 to run professional concerts in Burghclere
- Burghclere, Hampshire, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Burghclere Baroque was formed by Theresa Caudle in 2020 to promote the performance and study of baroque music in the beautiful, peaceful surroundings of the village of Burghclere in rural North Hampshire.
Theresa passionately believes that the arts are fundamental to our mental health and well-being and to our sense of community. Performing in smaller venues such as The Church of the Ascension gives the opportunity for local people to enjoy world-class performances of baroque music by professional musicians without the need to travel long distances. It also benefits musicians, who are suffering devastating loss of income as a result of the pandemic as well as the loss of their life-blood of playing and performing together, and who need all the help they can get in re-establishing performance opportunities wherever possible. Aspiring to minimise the carbon footprint of the performers as well as our audiences, whenever possible we involve the many talented musicians who specialise in performance of baroque music who live in Hampshire, Berkshire or nearby counties.
We are keen to keep ticket prices low to ensure that people are able to attend these concerts whatever their financial circumstances, and also to encourage young people to experience this kind of music-making by offering free entrance to the under-18s. However, this cannot be achieved without significant extra funding so if you are able to support us please do. We would be very grateful for any contribution, large or small, that helps make these performances possible.
