Become a Friend of the SPO
"It's great to feel part of this great enterprise."
"I enjoy reading the Friends' updates. It's fascinating to watch the orchestra grow and begin to get the recognition it richly deserves."
Friends make a real difference
Becoming a Friend helps you get closer to the music and gives vital support to SPO. It is only with funding from Friends, private donors, businesses and other supporters that our world-class concerts and work in the community can continue. No matter what level of Friend you choose, you will be making an important contribution to SPO’s work and performances. Friends receive a complimentary programme book and have an opportunity to sit in on concert-day rehearsals. There are special Friends events to which you will be invited* and you will benefit from priority booking for most concerts. Our occasional newsletter will give you the inside view on what’s new and update you on our community projects.
Being a Friend allows you closer access to our music and our musicians. Benefits vary with the different levels of membership and include regular updates, special events* and priority booking for concerts. Click on the links below to register your interest and we'll be in touch.
