ECO Friends and Patrons

Begin the journey here

We are all discovering new ways of making music happen and how we can share our work when concert halls are closed.

Why not consider joining us on our journey through these difficult times by becoming a Friend or a Patron?

Collectively, the Friends of the English Chamber Orchestra make a sustaining contribution to the work of the ECO, helping us bring more music to more audiences.

Our Friends have many motivations for joining, for example, socialising with like-minded music lovers and attending concert receptions, safe in the knowledge that their support makes the music happen.

Our Patrons provide much needed financial support, especially during a time when we cannot operate as normal. In return, these supporters receive a range of benefits and further opportunities to get involved with the orchestra.
