if you're in a school a musical ensemble could visit - no charge if it's a state school.

Looks like a £100 joining fee to me but I may be wrong. oO

How the Ticket Scheme Works

The Ticket Scheme is a subsidy programme that pays £7.50* for each young person who attends an eligible professional chamber music concert. This young person should then be admitted without charge. A young person is taken to mean anyone aged 8 to 25, inclusive. Chamber music is broadly defined to include works of the Western classical tradition that involve two to nine instrumentalists (inclusive), performing without a conductor. Vocal ensembles and song recitals (Lieder) are excluded from this definition. Up to 50 young people will be subsidised at each concert, unless otherwise agreed.

Members are asked to take our corporate friendship by standing order (£100 per year) by way of a signal of reciprocal intent. There are basic requirements in terms of acknowledging CAVATINA's support, all of which are detailed in the Guidelines for Members of the Ticket Scheme.

Each young person is asked to give their name and date of birth at each concert they attend that is included in the Ticket Scheme. At the end of the season or festival, the Ticket Scheme member is then asked to send this collected information to CAVATINA who will in turn calculate and pay the member the correct amount of subsidy.

*In some cases a lower sum is agreed, typically if the standard ticket price is lower than £7.50.

Correct, but the word for payment is gentler, see above.

the joining fee is for corporates wanting to join the scheme to OFFER reduced prices for young people.

potential concert-goers merely request free (or reduced price tickets - where applicable).
