OUR 2020/2021 Season
Our Committee is continuing to take account of current Government guidance in place relating to Covid-secure rehearsals and performances for amateur orchestras. A provisional programme for our 2020/2021 season has been agreed, which will be informed by this guidance:
10th/14th November 2020: likely to be informal playthrough of string orchestra works including Grieg’s Holberg Suite with a restricted audience.
6th March 2021: in Marlow with the Camerata Consort of singers, to include Mozart’s Coronation Mass is K317 and Solemn Vespers K339.
16th May 2021: St Lawrence West Wycombe, to perform the programme originally planned for this year’s Wycombe Arts Festival: music composed by Mozart and Haydn in the year 1775, including Haydn’s Overture Il Ritorno di Tobia and Symphony No. 60 in C Major, and Mozart’s Violin Concerto No 5 in A Major.
CAMPAIGN FOR THE ARTS
All of us in the arts (in the widest sense) are aware of the critical situation facing performers, companies and venues across the country and the desperate need for support to enable the greatest number of people to share the benefit of a thriving arts sector, which is clearly deeply important at a time when society is continuing to suffer from the impact of lockdown and the ongoing effects of social distancing. Although funding has been allocated, there is an ongoing need to shape the roadmap for a return to performance for both amateur and professional groups alike. More information via this link:
BECOME A FRIEND OF THE CAMERATA?
We would like to develop closer links with audience members and those who support us in other ways, and so we have decided to introduce a ‘Friends of the Camerata’ scheme. Becoming a friend does not necessarily involve paying any money, although of course donations and financial sponsorships are always welcome and will be appropriately acknowledged! Friendship can come in other forms too, especially by helping the orchestra in practical ways, including publicity and general organisation. So if you might be interested in assisting us in any way at all, do please contact us for further details.
Other ways of helping the Chiltern Camerata
The orchestra has entered into a partnership with easyfunding.org.uk This charity offers an on-line shopping facility through which Chiltern Camerata supporters can nominate the orchestra as a preferred good cause. Then, when you shop the easyfundraising way through one of their 3,135 shops and sites, they award the orchestra a commission for your purchase. It doesn’t cost you a penny extra!
The facility is now live at https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/chilterncamerata/
