Apollo

SPace with artwork

Our Apollo Club is a key way to involve individual and corporate donors directly in our appeal.

St George’s Bristol has commissioned an exquisite sound wave sculpture, made of 100 hand-blown glass roundels, which will hang as the centrepiece of our new building. Each roundel is secured with a £5,000 donation towards our Building a Sound Future appeal, with donors names permanently and prominently recorded adjacent to the sculpture. To date (March 2017) 80 of the total available 100 roundels have been sponsored.

Named Apollo, after the Greek god of music, the artwork is inspired by a piece of music composed and played at St George’s by Philip Glass, one of the most influential music-makers of his time. Apollo has been designed by Bristol based internationally-acclaimed artist Luke Jerram.

The hand-blown sculpture is based on a 3-D musical wave, rotated about its axis, and taken from the composer’s 2nd Etude which he performed at St George’s in 2013. The sculpture costs have already been met by generous sponsorship so that all donations will contribute directly to our final appeal target.

We welcome all individuals, corporates and organisations contributing together to give their support. By sponsoring a roundel, you will enjoy a range of exclusive benefits as a member of our Apollo Club, with all funds contributing directly to securing St George’s long term future.
