How Patrons Can Help

Play, Inspire, Achieve.

Passionate about music?  Become a Patron! The generosity of our supporters is vital to the ongoing success of our projects. With income from membership fees and ticket sales, touring and public funding only representing 20% of the annual funds needed, each year we must raise £120,000 to cover our costs.

Such support will ensure that we maintain our high standards and reach as many people as possible, it will provide us with a foundation to develop and maintain excellent community projects which match the exceptional talents of our musicians.

We can work alongside you to develop a unique partnership tailored to your values, incorporating the benefits of community music and the future development of the orchestra.
