Bath Minerva Choir very much appreciates the continued support of the Fidelius Group as our principal sponsorship partner. Bath Minerva Choir and Fidelius share many of the same characteristics and values. We are both rooted in the Bath community. We believe in inclusiveness, opportunity and integrity: everyone can play a part and we support each other. But we also believe in endeavour and excellence in performance – we strive to deliver the very highest standards. We know from experience that the sum can achieve more than the parts.
Fidelius wishes to establish supportive relationships with their clients and with local community organisations they help to thrive with their partnership support. Bath Minerva Choir aims to achieve the highest possible artistic standards in musical performance while remaining an inclusive, non-audition choir, working with excellent professional musicians. The choir also works wherever possible with young soloists who are rising stars in their field, to give them valuable early performance experience.
Working together, we aim to give both singers and audiences what we hope is a truly inspiring musical experience. Bath Minerva Choir is very grateful to Fidelius for their support and encouragement in helping us achieve this aim.
Gavin Carr, Conductor of Bath Minerva Choir said “Music can be one of the most enriching of all pursuits. As a choir that welcomes absolutely everyone, without audition, it is part of our function to reach out into the community and bring the gift of music-making to as many as are willing to try it. The purest of my delights as the choir’s conductor is seeing the growth of self- esteem in our members as they constantly surprise themselves with the excellence of their singing.
I believe there is a voice to be heard in everyone, and Bath Minerva Choir is a forum for bringing that voice into focus. The support of Fidelius means so much to us in this context, as it is both a recognition of like-minded intent in serving the community, and a means to allow us to be even more ambitious in our reaching out into the hearts and minds of our audience and our ever- growing community itself.”
Duncan McKillop, Head of Wealth Management at Fidelius said “Fidelius are delighted to announce an initial three year agreement to sponsor Bath Minerva Choir. Fidelius have a proud history of supporting local organisations such as Bath Minerva Choir which have such a positive impact on the local community. We recognised that as a choir they take the opportunity to welcome everyone both experienced or novice to join them and through a fabulous range of accomplished volunteers they then produce a series of outstanding choral events each year within Bath. We felt that an organisation that takes such a positive approach to everyday people in Bath should be supported and we are delighted that they have accepted our ofer of sponsorship. We look forward to attending all the upcoming events and look forward to introducing the choir to our local relationships.”
