Park Regis has extended its support of the world-renowned City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) following the recent announcement that the orchestra will receive a 25% cut in funding from Birmingham City Council from April 2017.
The gold partnership, which was formed in September 2016, has seen Park Regis provide valuable support to the CBSO by hosting a series of corporate and pre-concert events, as well as providing hotel clients with opportunities to enjoy the CBSO in action at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall.
Robin Ford, general manager at Park Regis Birmingham, said: “The CBSO is one of the country’s finest arts institutions, here on our doorstep. It is more critical now than ever that businesses in the region come forward to form commercial partnerships with organisations such as the CBSO, allowing them to continue to deliver world-class performances in our city.”
Bridget Blow, CBSO Chair, said: “There is global excitement about the CBSO’s future with one of the world’s most exciting young conductors, Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, at the helm. Given reduced public funding, we are grateful for the generosity of Park Regis, which recognises the importance of art and culture to the local economy. We both have an opportunity to continue to boost the city’s reputation as a great destination for visitors.”
