The Overtones officially launch Town Hall Symphony Hall's Big Give Christmas Challenge

The Overtones The Big Give Christmas

The Overtones officially launched Town Hall Symphony Hall’s Big Give Christmas Challenge, ahead of their concert at Symphony Hall on Tuesday 3 December.

Donations to Town Hall Symphony Hall between 3 – 10 December will be generously matched by the Patrick Trust and our Big Give Champion, the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Match-funding means that just one donation can help to inspire twice as many people with a lifelong love of music.

Monies raised will support the redevelopment of Symphony Hall's foyers, which will create dedicated spaces for learning and participation – that means, we'll be able to introduce over 24,000 young people and adults to a world of music every year.

Music is universal. It’s cross-generational, it has no language barriers, so I think it can bring everyone together.

Mark Franks, The Overtones

We’re delighted to be a Champion of The Big Give and supporting Town Hall Symphony Hall for this year’s Christmas Challenge. This is the first year we’ve signed up as a partner, following a match-funding pilot we ran which shows there are not just financial benefits to this approach, but also great opportunities for Town Hall Symphony Hall to form valuable partnerships, gain new supporters and volunteers, and expand their audiences. When we launched our new five-year strategic plan at the beginning of this year we made a firm commitment to offering match-funding, to incentivise others to donate to heritage, so it’s great to be ending the year by putting this into practise.

Please donate today and support more music making in Birmingham. Your money can inspire twice as many young people and adults with a life-long love of music.
