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.
