Membership is a great way to get closer to the music, the Orchestra and its musicians and as we approach the Orchestra's centenary in 2020, now is an incredibly exciting time to join us at the CBSO. 

All 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 news, 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.

For more information on joining, please contact Eve Vines, Individual Giving Manager on 0121 616 6541, or Bethan McKnight, Development Administrator on 0121 616 6510, or download and return a CBSO Membership Form.
