Becoming a Friend is an affordable way to get involved across the whole range of everything we do. From a donation of just £50 (or £35 if you’re under 35 – see this page), you will enable us to perform more concerts, commission more talented composers, inspire our exceptional young Academy musicians and allow young people to access professional music-making through our Creative Learning projects.
There are four levels of Friendship of the orchestra, where benefits accumulate as your donations increase.
You can also purchase Friends memberships as gifts.
