As an Individual

With your help, we can do so much more.

Every gift matters – especially yours, as we work every day to inspire and engage thousands of people with the power of music.

Our venues are places where communities come together, new ground-breaking ways of learning are developed and curious minds discover the extraordinary power of music. Our award-winning talent development programme helps to nurture the next generation of artists and makes music accessible to disadvantaged children across the city.

As a charity, we rely on the support of people like you. There are many ways you can support us from becoming a Member or Patron, to naming a seat after a loved one in the world-class Symphony Hall; from setting up a regular monthly donation to leaving a gift in your will.

Here are some of the ways you can support….

Your support is music to our ears

However you choose to get involved, whether through a one-off donation, a regular annual gift or becoming a member, we're here to help. If you would like to discuss your support in more detail please contact us.


We want to say a big thank you to all our current supporters and Patrons, enabling us to reach thousands of young people and adults with music every year...
