Memberships & Donations
We invite you to help us to continue excelling in every area of our work, from the most exciting concerts to our wide ranging Education and Community Programme. We will welcome you into our family, offer exceptional opportunities and encourage you to get to know the personalities behind our music.
Why does the Orchestra need my support?
Box office accounts for only 15% of the Orchestra's annual income and the price of each ticket does not come close to covering the actual cost of rehearsing and performing the concert. We also need your support for our inspirational education work in South London and beyond, which is funded entirely by private donations. Throughout history the creation and performance of music has been made possible by those for whom it is a passion. Today is no different. Giving is rewarding and we encourage you to enjoy those rewards with us.
