It’s no wonder they end up feeling like family. They’re not the only ones who feel that. Supporting them every step of the way are several treasured circles of Friends, all of whom we and the players cherish individually. Join the family and you can get to know the players, follow their progress, learn from them how an orchestra really works, and see first-hand the value of your investment to young people who really need it.
“We have got so much from our involvement with Southbank Sinfonia. It is a privilege to discover such high quality music played with such enthusiasm and to see the joy on the faces of the young musicians. You get to know them as the year progresses and feel real pride for them as they develop through the programme. It is a worthy organisation to support but it’s also such good fun to be involved!”
