Bristol Metropolitan Orchestra
At Ovation we have a number of connections with music. One member of staff, Andy Marshall, is the longest serving member of the gentleman’s section of Bristol Cathedral Choir. Chris Budd, who founded the company, plays guitar and regularly gigs in a band. Bob Mills, Ovation’s Investment Manager, has a Diploma in Piano Performance. Liz Thomas, the Operations Manager, is a seasoned choral society performer.
With these connections in mind, it is easy to see why we felt moved to sponsor the Bristol Metropolitan Orchestra in 2013. In the same way that a musical piece will not work unless the composer has a strong vision of the emotion he wishes to evoke, so money should be made to work towards a clear plan for financial wellbeing.
On the 15th of November 2014, the BMO hosted a fundraising evening for St. Peter’s Hospice – to which Ovation donated an Ovation guitar as a raffle prize.
