Since our formation in 2011, Exitex Ltd. have been our principal funders, supporting us in the development of our now well-established mentoring programme for young singers. This has resulted in an impressive list of productions and performances, involving collaborations with world-class exponents of early music. The strength of our partnership with Exitex was recognised at the Allianz Arts and Business Awards 2016, when we received the 'Sustained Partnership' award.

" We were blown away by Sestina when we first heard them perform. As a community-minded business, it is hugely important for us to invest in the talented young people in our local area. We began and continue to support Sestina to help our young musicians and singers concentrate on the development of their talents and share this with others"
