Friends and sponsorship

The support given by our Friends is highly valued by the orchestra, and financially we depend on the loyal support of our Friends and our audience.  In the past, this has included some generous sponsorship donations by individuals. 

If you would be interested in making a sponsorship donation, perhaps for a specific piece, a soloist or a concert, or more generally to support the orchestra, please click here

We have revised our Friends scheme for the forthcoming season to include free concert programmes and the additional option of joint membership for two people.

The annual subscriptions for Friends are £15 per year for a single membership and £27 for a joint membership.  This gives our Friends:

  • Free glass of wine or soft drink in the interval
  • Free concert programme
  • Recognition in concert programmes.

In order to become a Friend of DChO for the 2023/24 season, please complete the on-line form below and make the appropriate payment.  You will then be able to download your membership card which we would ask that you present to receive your free drinks and concert programmes.

We are keen to increase the number of our Friends, so please feel free to share the link to this page with anyone who might be interested.   

If you have a query about becoming a Friend of DChO, or would prefer not to use this on-line form and payment method, please click here to contact us. 

The name, address and payment information you provide in the Friends membership form will be held by us and used for the administration of the Friends scheme, including to provide Friends membership cards, to provide the benefits of the scheme (including publishing your name in the programme) and claim Gift Aid (if applicable).  The legal basis for this processing of your information is legitimate interests, i.e. the legitimate interest of Dorset Chamber Orchestra in administering the Friends scheme and providing the benefits of the scheme to you.  

If you do not wish your name to be published in our programmes to acknowledge you as a Friend of the orchestra, please click here to contact us.
