Since The Anvil opened in 1994, the International Concert Series has been a runaway success and brought many superb performers to Basingstoke.
The Anvil now presents one of the largest orchestral series in the country. However, with fewer than half the number of seats to sell of other concert halls, we are unable to cover the cost of bringing these great orchestras to Basingstoke from ticket revenue alone. The Great Music of the World Fund gives us the security to be able to make the upfront commitment required.
In the last eighteen years, the Fund has supported more than forty concerts, including memorable appearances by the Leipzig Gewandhaus, St.Petersburg Philharmonic, Bergen Philharmonic, and Budapest Festival orchestras.
