Corporate Patrons

Patronage of the arts preserves a societal strategic resource

Help preserve a musical heritage

Long before the Medici family in Florence, artists and musicians have benefited from the patronage of either the church or nobility.  More than four centuries later, the arts is still dependent on the beneficence of those who subscribe to the belief that art and culture not only gives value to us individually – intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally, but that society itself benefits.  It does so economically through tourism that involves arts & culture engagement; by increased revenue for organisations in the arts & culture sector; and similarly for local economies generally.  It benefits society educationally, where students engaged with arts & culture are twice as likely to volunteer in their community; where children from low income families who participate in arts & culture activities are three times more likely to continue their education up to degree level; and children’s performance levels in core school subjects improves when they engage in daily musical activity.  And finally it benefits society’s health & wellbeing, where arts & cultural interventions have been shown to have positive impacts on health conditions ranging from depression to dementia; and where subjective wellbeing is higher amongst those with higher levels of arts & culture engagement.  Arts patronage is an investment that creates better communities.

Our Corporate Patrons therefore, do far more than their critical role in bringing the Opera Odyssey project to life.  They will shape the support for opera for generations to come.  They will help preserve the treasures of composers and librettists going back over four centuries, as well as many countries’ musical heritage.  Their support engenders music appreciation and inspires creativity.  So we invite you now, to join us in our mission to bring forth many of these benefits and help us create a truly international resource that will be enjoyed by millions across the globe.

Composers

In the 17th century it was common for opera singers to have Protectors or patrons, who were usually wealthy nobles, senior church figures, or royalty.  Opera Odyssey has appropriated this concept whereby corporate entities may become exclusive ‘protectors’ of a given composer and be credited in the series accordingly.  A total of 170 composers are being featured in the Opera Odyssey series and as its producers, it is our fervent hope that corporate bodies within each country will express interest in their own nation’s composers, to honour, protect, and promote their body of work and their country’s musical heritage.
