“Thank you to Irwin Mitchell for coming on board as a new sponsor during this exciting period of development for La Folia. They have immediately understood our uncompromising level of artistic quality as well as our tireless commitment to the local community. Their generosity towards Evening Songs will help us to promote the project to cathedrals throughout the UK and give more of our most vulnerable young people the chance to have their voices heard.”

Rebecca Brown, Associate Solicitor at Irwin Mitchell Southampton, says:

“Irwin Mitchell is delighted to announce this new partnership with La Folia and specifically our support towards Evening Songs 2019. Our workplace choir are also looking forward to getting involved behind the scenes as the project develops.”
