Help keep Pinchgut's heart beating 

For nineteen years, Pinchgut has revelled in creating transcendent musical experiences for our audiences. We have endured thanks to our passionate community of baroque opera lovers, who purchase tickets to our performances and give generously every year. Now, in the wake of COVID-19, we need your help like never before.

With your help, we will emerge from this crisis and continue the vital work of live performance with our extraordinary family of artists and ensure they return to the Pinchgut stage and baroque opera continues to live and thrive in this country.

We hope you enjoy watching the video we made for you to launch our Annual Giving Appeal. It serves as a reminder of the joy and magic we create when we come together to create this glorious music. It was a bittersweet experience, as I miss performing with my friends and colleagues so very much. Music needs intimacy and human connection in order to work its magic on our emotions.

We ask that you please consider donating what you can—and help keep Pinchgut's heart beating.

Warmest wishes,

Erin Helyard - Artistic Director
