Become a patron and join the absolute classics family Download Form Here

In spring 2015, we launched the Absolute Classics Patron Scheme and invited members of our audience to help us bring more world-class musicians to perform in Dumfries & Galloway. We have been overwhelmed with the response and are hugely grateful to everyone who is helping to secure the financial future of our musical charity.

Absolute Classics is going from strength to strength with audiences growing year on year. However, without the support of our donors and sponsors, we would not be able to do what we do, because ticket sales rarely cover the significant cost of staging concerts with professional artists.

“By becoming a Patron, you will be part of an ever-growing family of music lovers who are helping us to present terrific concerts and involve local young musicians in our education programmes.”

“In return for your support, you will be the first to hear about future concerts and receive invitations to special events where you can meet the artists. We hope you’ll want to join us.”

Alex McQuiston, Director

Absolute Classics is a charity registered in Scotland (No SC044584). Donating through Gift Aid will increase the value of your gift by 25% at no extra cost to you.
