WOCo. is very grateful for the continued support of our Patrons, the internationally renowned tenor Ian Bostridge and the Marquis de Grailly. The de Grailly family generously offer the Château de Panloy for the performances and accommodation for the Emerging Artists programme. They support WOCo. in miriad ways and we are delighted to continue our collaboration in 2017.

WOCo. Seasons 9 and 10 are supported by INDEPENDENT OPERA at Sadler's Wells. We are enormously grateful to them.

WOCo. thanks Gary Thorne, Head of Design, RADA, for his assistance in expanding the Emerging Artists programme.

WOCo. operates as a not-for-profit organisation and relies on the generosity of our Friends, without whom we could not support the Emerging Artists. In 2017 WOCo. especially thanks:

  • Tim and Maria Church, sponsors of Pamina performed by Rose Stachniewska
  • Richard and Patricia Millett, the sponsors of our cellist, Olivia da Costa

We thank all those who have become Friends of WOCo. and and who supported our recent Kickstarter campaign. We exceeded our target thanks to the generosity of campaign backers and supporters.

We are grateful for the kindness of hosts in Port d'Envaux and Crazannes who accommodate the players during the rehearsal periods including M. et Mme. Gerard Gaillard.

Brian Jones of Jones Lafuente Limited develops and maintains our website.

WOCo. is extremely grateful for all their generous support. The following organisations support our work in France and the UK.
