Supporting ECS


We actively seek and welcome financial support from the commercial sector, the general public, our members and associate members in order to support the plans and activities of the choir:-



During each season, the cost of our concerts (e.g. venue, orchestra, soloists, music hire) always exceeds our box office revenue. As a result, the choice of the works we can perform is restricted, sometimes severely. We cover the loss by subscriptions and other sources. Support from sponsorship and donations will help a great deal to fund our performances.


Bursary fund

Due to generous legacies from choir members, we are able to provide free membership of the choir to young people through our bursary fund. We are also grateful to Waitrose for supporting our Bursary Fund through their Community Matters scheme. Support from sponsorship and donations will help to replenish this fund.


50th Anniversary

We marked our 50th anniversary season in 2011-2012 by the following special events:-

Undertaking Walton's Belshazzar's Feast at the QEH in April 2012.

The commissioning of a new work "Sea and Stars" by Julian Philips, performed at the Cadogan Hall, Sloane Terrace in June 2012.

Our 50th anniversary concert was held at Ealing Abbey in November 2012.

Support from sponsorship and donations has helped us stage these events.


60th Anniversary

Our 60th anniversary season iwill be in 2021-2022.

We hope to be able to perform a large scale work to commemorate this occasion and support from sponsorship and donations will help us stage this.


Future Legacy

We recognise the importance of promoting choral music to new audiences and new members, thereby creating a legacy for the future. Support from sponsorship and donations will help us provide incentives in this area (e.g. offering subsidised tickets to young people or other groups).
