Male Choirs & Ladies' Choirs
At the end of each calendar year, Tŷ Cerdd invites male and ladies' choirs to submit details of the mileage travelled to and from rehearsal by their conductor/accompanist in the previous twelve months (Form R3-under review). A grant may then be made based upon an agreed amount per mile above a certain number (usually high) of miles travelled. The aim of this form of assistance is to enable the choir to increase the honorarium it is able to offer to a conductor/accompanist in order to attract those with greater musical and training ability.
At the end of each calendar year, Tŷ Cerdd invites Male & Female choirs to submit details of the music purchases made during the previous twelve months (Form R2). A grant may then be made based upon an agreed percentage of the cost of the music purchased. The aim of this form of assistance is to encourage the performance of new repertoire. The cost of single copies is not normally considered, as this may imply that photocopying is taking place.
