Launching són is tremendously exciting! It brings inspiring, professional performances to Southampton and across the south. It also promises to touch the lives of youngsters through rich and varied education projects. Your contributions are vital to all our work, because we depend enormously on the generous support of individuals, joint donors and businesses for everything that we do.

There are many ways you can support són – either through our individual & joint sponsorship schemes, or as a corporate sponsor – including our newly-launched Founding Partner scheme.

Discover how you can become involved in our journey from the very beginning as an individual supporter, through gift membership or perhaps in the memory of someone special.
