One week to go...
There is now less than one week to go until The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2012 begins! We're taking part in this special online challenge in order to help us reach our our fundraising target for our USA Tour in April 2013.
In our biggest international tour ever, the Ensemble will be joined by guest soloist, trumpeter Alison Balsom, to play 11 concerts across 7 states of America. This is a huge opportunity for the Ensemble to fly the flag for Scotland at major international venues, and is an endorsement of our growing reputation. We're asking our supporters to help us make this tour happen, and through the Big Give there is the chance to double the value of your donation to our work with one mouse-click!
In previous items relating to The Big Give, we have asked you to visit thebiggive.org.uk and to search for ‘Scottish Ensemble US Tour’. Please note that the easiest way to directly visit and donate to the Scottish Ensemble’s US Tour through The Big Give is by visiting new.thebiggive.org.uk/project/SEUSTour. Log on at 10am on either the 6, 7 or 8 December and click the ‘Donate Online Now’ button to make your donation. Remember that the closer to 10am you donate, the more likely it is that your donation will be doubled, as there is a fixed amount of match funding available on each day of the Christmas Challenge, which is allocated on a first come, first served basis.
For more information on dates and programmes for our tour please see our forthcoming concerts page, or for a full description of our participation in The Big Give, please visit the ‘Big Give’ page on our website.
