Paul Caine, Managing Director, Trust IV Ltd
"We all have those moments whilst sitting behind our desks, moments when we want to be involved in something completely different, something that is more fulfilling, something that puts a smile on faces?
We at Trust IV had just such a moment earlier this year, when out of the blue came an invite to meet the Camerata team and learn about what they do.
We are so glad we took an hour out of our day to meet the team over a coffee at the Bridgewater Hall, and to learn about their idea for Camerata Connect, where like-minded business people can come together in their support of the orchestra and their work.
Now, six months after becoming members of Camerata Connect, we have had many great experiences, met so many interesting people, seen great performances in interesting venues and have the knowledge that Camerata are also doing so much good in their community work.
Personal highlight for me was meeting the absolutely delightful and talented Nicola Benedetti after the Vivaldi concert – something that you simply can’t hope to happen if you stay behind that desk!
So get up, meet the team, let them take you to an event or an outreach project and see for yourself. You will be glad you did."
