The Big Give Christmas Challenge: Double your donation!
26 November 2018
From midday on Tues 27 Nov until Tues 4 Dec 2018 all donations made to Gabrieli via The Big Give Christmas Challenge will be DOUBLED!
There’s a buzz in the office every time we receive a donation towards one of our landmark projects – it’s a thrill to know how much our supporters love what we do, and that you are as determined as we are to see these ideas take flight. However, few weeks match the excitement of The Big Give Christmas Challenge. This year we have just one week to raise £10,000; if we can secure that £10,000 between midday on Tues 27 Nov and midday 4 Dec, we will immediately access an additional £10,000 in matched funding!
This year’s Big Give is being used to raise money for our recordings of Purcell The Fairy Queen and King Arthur. These works have been part of the lifeblood of Gabrieli for most of our 35 years of performing, and it’s perhaps surprising that it’s taken until now for us to record them. But all good things come to those who wait… Insightful new performing editions prepared by Paul McCreesh and our principal bass violinist Christopher Suckling and a stellar cast led by Carolyn Sampson and Roderick Williams are set to make these the definitive recordings of the repertoire.
To get these innovative recordings to market, WE NEED YOUR HELP! And by donating through The Big Give Christmas Challenge, your donation will work twice as hard, and go twice as far.
