Welcome to the Corymbus Patreon!  If you're new to this site, it's the best way to support the work I'm doing. It's hassle-free for you and for me.

It's easy to set up a monthly donation of your choice, easy to amend it, and easy to cancel whenever you wish. In return, I won't add you to any mailing list, send you messages asking for extra support, nor for your reasons if you cancel. That's all up to you and I respect that!

But as an extra thank you, setting up a donation here means you will get access to patron-only posts, by me. They might include round-ups of musical and cultural news that I've found interesting, commentary on other arts issues of the day, and some of the more interesting things that don't make it into the finished articles.

Take a look at the posts section here. Some of them are publicly viewable so that potential new patrons know what to expect, but patrons can access them all.

Why donate?

Corymbus has no adverts or paywalls, but lots of work goes into it. The regular money that Patreon provides is hugely important for funding the time to research, write and edit articles for the site. So far I've been funding a lot of my own time on Corymbus through my savings, which is unsustainable.

Corymbus isn't going to go away, but the more Patreon pledges I get, the more time I can commit to this project - it will make the difference between it being only occasionally updated and being a website that delivers new content on a regular basis.

By pledging, you will be supporting the following aims of Corymbus:

1 Promoting classical music as inherently valuable, and a force for public good regardless of its market value.

2 Rectifying the persistent inequalities in classical music, by shining a light on creative work by women, ethnic minorities, and composers outside the mainstream repertoire. 

3 Exploring connections between classical music and other topics, to build new 'ways in' for people to discover what can sometimes be a quite insular art form.

4 Striving for quality over quantity in thoughtful, well-researched writing.

Anything you can give - no matter how small - is worthwhile. Your generosity will help to build growing archive of writing that anyone can access to learn more about classical music, in all its diversity and depth. 

Thank you for reading, and thank you for your support!
