Support the Choir

Why we need your support

The Choir singing in the Chapel

The funding needs for King’s College Choir are significant. The College supports the choristers by paying school fees of £300,000 annually, and employs a full-time Director of Music, a post considered to be the most prestigious choral directorship in the world.

King’s has been imaginative in finding new ways to bring the remarkable music and the Chapel experience to the world. Services and recitals are now made available to listeners around the world (see the webcasts page), the Choir records on the College’s own label, and frequent tours take the music of the Chapel to international audiences.

King’s funds all of these activities and while some bring in income sufficient to pay for expenses, many do not.

What your support can do

Chorister singing in the Chapel

The Choir does not have a dedicated endowment fund, and we believe it is essential to establish an endowment to ensure the future of the Choir, and to endow the Fellowship for the Director of Music.

Philanthropic support is also used to help fund concerts, tours and recordings, as well as the education of choristers and new projects such as mobile applications and webcasts.

See our page on Funding needs and giving opportunities for more information on supporting a specific project.
