Support

Become a Patron, a Friend, or Sponsor a Player

Devon Baroque relies on the financial backing of its supporters – audiences, individuals, Dartington Arts, and grant-making bodies such as the Exeter & Devon Classical Music Trust.

Your support enables us to plan further into the future and create a sustainable and secure foundation for our developing work.

Together, we can keep Devon Baroque at the forefront of exciting music making, concert giving and education work throughout the South West region.

How can you support Devon Baroque?

Become a

Patron

A Patron commits to a 3-year plan of financial support. There are three levels of patronage:

  • Bronze: a commitment of £250 p.a.
  • Silver: a commitment of £500 p.a.
  • Gold: a commitment of £1,000 p.a.

Friend

A yearly commitment at your discretion. We suggest £50 for an individual / £80 for a couple.

Sponsor a Player

You can sponsor a player of your choice, or any of our players

Directors (Andrew Wilson-Dickson/Persephone Gibbs): £700 p.a.
Section Principals (2nd Violin, Viola, Cello, Violone): £600 p.a.
Any of our other musicians: £500 p.a.
These amounts cover a minimum of 3 concerts a year. You can sponsor a player for a full season or for one concert (simply divide by 3).
