Live Performance Fund


Live Performance Fund


 With the welcome and long-overdue flourishing of the Gál discography, it is now a major priority to encourage and support live performance at the highest level on the concert platform. The Society regularly receives requests for support from musicians but too often must decline due to lack of funds, often at the cost of the performance happening at all.

 The Society aims to support a variety of events featuring Gál, including the special annual Edinburgh concert. This year, for example, an exceptional array of performers, including  renowned soprano Patricia Rozario OBE, the Edinburgh Quartet, and an excellent chamber choir, is allowing very special and rarely-heard Gál works to be presented live: Of A Summer Day for women’s choir, soprano solo & strings (last performed some 30 years ago); Nachtmusik for men’s choir, soprano solo, flute, cello & piano (a supremely moving and powerful work); the beautiful Motet for 8-part Choir and Lyrical Suite for flute, string quartet and soprano solo.  All this comes at considerable financial cost, but the importance of such live concerts which present rarely-heard, high-quality music, performed by leading musicians, cannot be stressed enough. An initial fund of £5,000 would enable us to make a difference by supporting more such events. Any help towards this target will be much appreciated.
