Cantors' Circle

Cantors' Circle
Support the Dunedin Consort by joining the Cantors’ Circle!

Cantors in Bach and Handel’s Germany were music directors for church and town and championed the arts. Dunedin Consort looks to private individuals to champion its art in the form of personal giving.

There are four levels of annual giving which have been given titles of musicians at the time of Bach and Handel:

  • £50-£500 - Alumnus (Bach's word for 'Chorister')
  • £501-£1,000 - Stadtpfeifer (Professional instrumentalist)
  • £1,001-£2,500 - Konzertmeister (Leading musician)
  • £2,501 and over - Kapellmeister (Royal music director)

Dunedin Consort has always enjoyed much generous private support which has allowed it to put on performances which would otherwise not have been possible. This kind of support is increasingly important to Dunedin and, with high profile recordings on the market Dunedin Consort wants its audience to have the opportunity of enjoying its live performances.


Dunedin would like to acknowledge with grateful thanks the assistance of the following Cantors for their continuing support.
