The City of Southampton Orchestra has an important part to play in the local community. It provides an arena for musicians to use and develop their talents for their own satisfaction and personal development. It acts as a social club; weekly rehearsals are a time of study and relaxation for both members and non-playing supporters. The by-product of all this pleasurable activity is our concert season during which we offer our talents back to the community in a series of performances in the City and surrounding areas. We are proud to display the results of our labours and wish to share the exhilaration of making music with our concert goers.
The object of this scheme is to encourage sponsorship at all levels. The individual who can contribute £20 is just as important to the Orchestra as the Corporate Sponsor who may commit several hundred pounds. Below are details of a number of ways that you may contribute to the on-going running expenses of the Orchestra.
