Support for freelance artists
We are pleased to announce more financial support for our community of freelance artists & technical staff at a critial time for the arts.
On top of support announced in March, the amazing generosity of our audience, supporters & the Leonard Ingrams Foundation means we can now offer even more: a total of £450,000 this year.
Many of those who received this support have shared their reactions. Here is a small selection, with thanks to all our supporters for making this happen.
I was an Alvarez Young Artist at @GarsingtonOpera this summer, and the amount of support (both financial and educational) they’ve provided is truly astonishing - a really classy company, and I can’t wait to work for them again some time in the future! https://t.co/dVtfFNTpfu

Incredibly grateful of how the chorus have been treated brilliantly and respectfully by Garsington in this most challenging of years. Thank you once again! I hope to be back at Wormsley soon! https://t.co/AqcYOgf3nE

I'm proud to call myself a member of @GarsingtonOpera. They've been absolutely brilliant during the Summer, providing us Alvarez Young Artists with online workshops and coaching and helping us to create audition videos. They're even continuing to support us financially. Thank you https://t.co/jrbSwqVHSS
