Friends of the Choir

The choir is very lucky to have many friends and supporters.
Many of you are ex-members, family of members, or have just enjoyed the sound of Phoenix over the years.
Without your support we would not be the choir we are today.

In the past we had the Patrons scheme, but with the many different ways of interacting with the choir
a more apt title is ‘Friends of Phoenix’.

What will you get for being a Friend?

  • Discounts on tickets for our Annual Concert at the Concert Hall, Reading.
  • A regular bulletin of inside information on the choir’s activities.
  • An invitation to our annual social in the summer for choir members and Friends.
  • Our unending love and gratitude for your support.
If you would like to have a chat about becoming a friend of the choir, please go to our enquiry page and submit the form which will be received by our choir secretary.


Sponsor Reading Phoenix ChoirReading Phoenix Choir is riding the wave of popular interest in choral music and has ambitions to raise its media profile even higher across the region.

With all the concerts, activities, recordings and tours, the choir (which operates as a charity) has significant running costs. We are keen to talk to businesses who can support us through sponsorship.

The benefits? The choir’s concert programmes, website, CDs and promotional posters can be used for promoting your business – for example the main annual concert in Reading attracts a full house audience of over 800 people.

We would be delighted to have a chat about your sponsorship idea, so please get in touch.
