Fundraiser and Relationship Manager
The Temple Music Foundation was founded in 1992 in The Temple, just off Fleet Street in the City of London. It was established to raise substantial funds to present Sir John Tavener’s commission The Veil of the Temple, a choral work of over seven hours, performed overnight in the historic Temple Church, between dusk and dawn. The work was composed for the Temple Church Choir performing with the Holst Singers. Subsequently, the TMF has planned and presented an annual programme of concerts in the Temple; it works particularly closely with the Temple Church Choir and has strong relationships with Middle Temple and Inner Temple, the two Inns of Court situated within the Temple.
The Fundraiser and Relationship Manager is a key member of the small team
The TMF promotes around 20 events a year in the spectacular spaces of the Elizabethan Middle Temple Hall, Inner Temple's Parliament Chamber and in the 12th Century Temple Church. The repertoire is a mixture of choral music, solo song recitals, instrumental chamber music and other events, some of which are broadcast. These are spread across the three legal terms of the year, none being programmed in August and only very exceptionally in September.
The Fundraising Manager is a key member of the small team. The TMF receives no funding except for the resources it raises through its own endeavours; the artistic programme relies on raising funds for each event. The Foundation has a strong network of support within the Bar and the Judiciary, as well as outside the Temple and further afield. It receives generous support through individuals, barristers' chambers, corporate members and some trust & foundation grants.
