Phoenix Brass is funded mainly by player subscriptions, fundraising which includes concerts, other fee paying engagements, coffee mornings, public donations and membership subscriptions from the Friends of Phoenix. As with any organisation, Phoenix Brass has to meet various costs to keep the band running and functioning as effectively as possible.
Costs include instruments (including the purchase and maintenance), uniforms, music, materials and administrative costs, hire of the band-room and insurance.
We appreciate any donation, however small, to help Phoenix Brass achieve its full potential, to help the Band develop young talent and to make the opportunity of learning to play an instrument available to all.
Phoenix Brass has a wonderful audience following and many have become loyal supporters. A supporters’ organisation, Friends of Phoenix, was formed in 1994. With a membership that includes parents, relatives, friends and enthusiastic listeners, they have supported the band in every possible way.
This highly enthusiastic support group has provided fundraising, refreshments for concerts, transport for players and has organised social events for Band members.
You are invited to join the Friends of Phoenix which supports the Band financially and also helps us to stay in touch with our supporters, keeping you informed about future concerts, engagements and news.
For an annual fee of £5.00, each ‘Friend’ receives:
- “Phoenix Flame” newsletter to keep you up to date and involved with the Band
- Concession tickets for admission to certain concerts
