Membership & Donations

Join us as a member or make a donation to get closer to our musicians and our work while providing vital support for our world-class concerts and educational programmes.

Mm Big Words.

With the 2018-19 season approaching, now is the perfect time to join the CBSO as a member and get closer to the music

Every member to sign up in March will be entered into a prize draw to win a two-course meal for two at Marmalade, plus two concert tickets to a CBSO concert of their choice* with complimentary interval drinks!

*Subject to availability

Membership is a great way to get closer to the music, the Orchestra and its musicians and now is an incredibly exciting time to join us at the CBSO. All of our supporting members have the chance to sit in on rehearsals, to meet musicians at our afternoon teas and other special events, and to receive behind-the-scenes information about what we are up to, as well as priority booking before concerts go on sale to the general public.

Those giving at higher levels have the opportunity to travel with us on tour, experience educational work, connect with individual musicians, meet other members for drinks at concerts and support specific concerts.

“An excellent way of making new like-minded friends, meeting some of the musicians and learning more about this amazing internationally-famous orchestra. Please join us!"   
John and Anna – Overture Circle
