The Friends of The Epiphoni Consort are integral to the success of our choir.
Epiphoni aspires to the highest professional standards and to continually explore new repertoire and concert formats. With no guaranteed regular funding and ticket sales rarely covering the full cost of our artistic endeavours, the Friends provide vital support to ensure we can pursue exciting and novel projects and development opportunities for our members.
Specifically, your support helps us to:
- Pursue new projects based on musical excellence, not profitability
- Provide opportunities for our singers to work with leading vocal coaches and guest conductors
- Continue to record our choir
- Ensure that we are open to all by continuing to have no subscription fees for our members
- The scheme also provides an opportunity for supporters to get closer to the choir and to be the rst to hear of our new projects and developments.
Ways to support us and what we provide in return
Epiphoni was founded in 2014 as a project-based chamber choir for singers of an advanced training but who, in most cases, pursue other primary careers.
We aspire to the highest professional standards but our members are unpaid for singing with us.
The choir undertakes an ambitious and eclectic programme of activity spanning both standalone projects and collaborations with leading ensembles and conductors. Recent collaborators have included the City of London Sinfonia, the Kensington Symphony Orchestra, the Southbank Sinfonia, John Butt and Roderick Williams.
The group is committed to exploring new repertoire and concert formats. In 2017 we released our debut recording, Sudden Light (Delphian Records) featuring many unrecorded works by David Bednall. In 2018 we undertook three acclaimed concerts mixing choral works with drama in Revolution! and The Christmas Truce.
