We are grateful to the following organisations for their support:

Enterprise Music Scotland

Enterprise Music Scotland (EMS) is designated as a Regularly Funded Organisation (RFO) by Creative Scotland. EMS has a wide-ranging brief, a major part of which is to secure funds and opportunities for chamber music Promoters and Performers. 

Among other things, EMS uses its funding to help properly constituted organisations, such as Biggar Music, to promote chamber music in our local area. 

So, Biggar Music must make a case, year by year, to justify the funding which we receive from EMS (currently about 35% of our income). In order for EMS to be seen to be acting fairly, the application process requires a lot of detail, not only about forthcoming, planned events, but providing evidence such as number of members, attendance at concerts, fund-raising activity, etc. This is an important task which the Biggar Music Trustees undertake annually. It is essential that we get this right, in order to maintain a sound financial position which will enable us to arrange the concerts which you, our members and supporters, enjoy.

After Christmas, 17th January sees the Navarra String Quartet, Sunday afternoon, 10th February, is the BBC Young Musician winner, saxophonist Jess Gillam, with pianist Zeynep OzsucaSarah Beth Briggs returns on 8th March with her wonderful piano mastery and we end the season on 25th March with the A4 Brass Quartet, winners of the Tunnell prize.

Brochures will be produced in the summer and we look forward to seeing you all for another great season.   Your season ticket also gives you access to  concerts in Lanark and Peebles for half price - well worth the money.

Subscription income from members is vital to the welfare of the Biggar Music Club, for without it, it would be difficult to make the necessary planning decisions and contract commitments for each season which usually have to be made a whole year in advance.

At present, the membership fee of £65 provides free entry to all the concerts for the whole season, only just over £8 per concert, even less than last year. This is amazingly good value when compared to what you would have to pay to enjoy live performances by the same artists or ensembles in Edinburgh or Glasgow (or even London's Wigmore Hall) and without the cost and inconvenience of having to get there...
