A message from Richard Laing, our Music Director
As a conductor I often muse upon the similarities between my role and that of a manager in the business world. I must gather together many different but highly-skilled individuals, persuade them to share my vision, and lead each project from tender beginnings to final flowering. People-management is as important as inspiration; effective control of budgets just as vital as the ability to find the gap in the market, to create a product none of one’s competitors can equal.
With Nottingham Harmonic I believe we have a world-class choir with the energy and the determination to create that unique product, a musical experience second-to-none. We work with some of the greatest soloists and orchestras in the nation, performing in various venues around the county of Nottinghamshire and further afield to discerning and intelligent audiences who share our vision of a powerful shared artistic experience.
Yet our concerts, which I’m proud to say are always extraordinarily well-received by the public and the press, are rarely self-financing, and we rely on our own fundraising and on the generosity of our sponsors to continue our work. If your organisation shares our commitment to the highest levels of performance and professionalism; if, like us, you have a vision of people coming together to make our lives better, deeper, more enriched, then perhaps you will consider being more closely involved with our work. We have packages to suit all budgets, and can tailor individual packages to your requirements. You might consider sponsoring a particular piece of music being performed, or a prominent section of the orchestra (Kettle-drums? Trumpets? Double-basses?). You might like to sponsor our eminent soloists. However you would like to help, we hope that your organisation and ours can become partners.
We look forward to working with you.
