Patronage Schemes

While The English Concert has delighted audiences around the world for over 40 years, with no public funding, the survival of the orchestra is dependent upon the generous donations of its supporters.

We would invite all those that follow the orchestra to join our dedicated family of donors who maintain the orchestra through a variety of established and tailored levels of support.

The most popular method is through an annual subscription. Here you may find a whole range of options to suit your needs along with associated benefits.
