Become a Friend

Join us to help establish a platform for classical music in Mirepoix. As a Friend you will benefit from a discount on tickets and invitations to a range of special events. Download a Friend application form (pdf).


We need volunteers to join our team of helpers. At concerts you could greet people at the door, help direct the audience to their seats, sell programmes or serve refreshments. Or you could help set up a rehearsal venue, put up staging, house or feed a musician. There is always a job for someone to do, and we are grateful for any help.

Sponsor a concert

Our relationship with event sponsors is a mutually beneficial partnership, which supports our work, and promotes your business. Sponsoring of an event enables you to support your community, benefit your employees and enhance your business profile.
