Trusts, Foundations
& Sponsorships

Clonter is incredibly grateful for the support of several trusts and foundations. This support is vital, helping us to deliver an exciting, innovative and varied programme and to plan for the future.

Currently, several aspects of our work are supported, including;

  • Educational outreach, bringing opera, operetta and musical theatre to children who might otherwise never have such experiences
  • Spring opera studio and showcase
  • The main summer opera training and performance programme for emerging artists
  • Community events for the elderly

“It’s a great and intimate evening for our clients.”

“Philosophically, culturally and financially it ticks many boxes for us.”

“We have had a long term relationship with Clonter. It’s been a very, very happy one, and I would encourage anybody to explore that from a corporate point of view.”

“The Clonter experience is a very intimate one, our relationship with our clients is likewise.”

W H Ireland Ltd, Robert Race, Head of Wealth Management (Manchester Office)

“The John Lewis Partnership has supported Clonter’s education programme for over 20 years. The yearly reports you send us, together with the day I recently spent observing a primary school workshop, amply demonstrate the very effective use you make of our donation. The impact of your education work is profound, relevant and lasting, and the quotes from children and teachers you have provided in successive annual reports attest to how much the children have benefited from your work.

Significantly, the education work fits in with Clonter Opera’s artistic mission to help young music professionals get started in their careers. By training them to work with young children, you give them valuable career skills, while providing the children with aspirational role models, encouraging them to pursue their own dreams.

I wholeheartedly recommend Clonter Opera’s education work to any donor wishing to support children in their local community.”

John Lewis Partnership, Nigel Brotherman, Music Appeal Advisor to the Chairman
