The Friends of St Matthew's Music
     
 

St Matthew's is a large sought-after venue for music-making and the performing arts, with a distinguished heritage of artistic excellence and patronage.

The Friends of St Matthew's Music is an association of people who wish to help maintain and enhance music-making here for present and future generations as well as to enjoy one another's company through a programme of social and cultural activities.
The main objective of the Friends is to support the Director of Music in the fostering and development of music-making at St Matthew's. This objective may incorporate financial and social support towards the

work of the Choir and to music events held at St Matthew's both choral and instrumental, as well as contributing to provisions relating to the music. The Friends also contribute positively to scholarships and educational courses in addition to the Choir's cathedral visits and social outings.

In order for the music at St Matthew's to continue to thrive and to ensure the future security of the Choir and tradition which has been built up over a period of more than one hundred years we need your support.

Membership

Support of the music through the Friends is given by members in regular payment of subscriptions and, for some, by joining in the life and worship of the Church community. While many members live locally there are others further afield who simply enjoy receiving information about the music of the Church, its mission, development and role within the community.

Membership is open to anyone, and as a Friend you will:
 

Help to secure the future of the music and Choir at St Matthew's and uphold its musical tradition
 

Contribute positively to musical events at St Matthew's especially concerts given by the Choir and recitals on the renowned Walker organ
 

Receive reductions on ticket prices and priority seating at concerts and other musical events supported by the Friends
 

Enjoy an annual social gathering and receive an annual report and periodic newsletters keeping you up-to-date with the life and progress of the music and Choir and of the Friends
 

Meet others with similar interests and have the opportunity to share in the outings, lectures and other social occasions which are arranged
 

If you wish to give practical help, have the reward of working as part of a vibrant team at concerts and events
 

If you are interested in joining the Friends of St Matthew's Music and supporting our cause, please contact the Director of Music. Alternatively, you can download a membership leaflet with more details of the Friends and how to become a member here, as well as a Membership Form.
