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

Membership is a great way to get closer to the music, the orchestra and its musicians as we celebrate the orchestra's centenary. Your support will also help the CBSO recover from the Covid crisis, and your gift will be matched pound for pound by a generous member of our campaign board.

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.

"It's such a privilege to watch and listen to the orchestra in rehearsal. Observing a rehearsal adds another dimension to the concert performance and furthers my huge admiration for the wonderful CBSO." 
Pam - Gold Patron
