An open letter from the General Manager

Dear All,

Your support of the English Chamber Orchestra can make a difference

It is never easy being a professional musician, particularly now in these extraordinary times but with your help the English Chamber Orchestra Charitable Trust can continue to support the orchestra in funding concerts and encouraging young musical talent. Your contribution will help maintain the orchestra’s long and proud independence as it is entirely funded by the generosity of donors, corporate sponsors, subscriptions and ticket sales.

The Charitable Trust’s goals this year are to support the orchestra in:

* a shortened but nevertheless exciting 2020/21 London season which includes a concert in the Royal Festival Hall on 3rd February 2021 with Pinchas Zukeman as soloist/conductor;

* a celebratory gala concert in the summer of 2021;

* an expansion of its hugely popular schools outreach programme.

There are three ways you can support the Charity:

  1. Become a Friend or Patron of the Orchestra (see below)
  2. Corporate/personal donation
  3. Sponsorship

With your help the English Chamber Orchestra Charitable Trust can
build on the orchestra’s wonderful heritage of working with many of the world’s greatest
musicians and encouraging young, talented musicians at the start of their

Why not join us for the journey?

Thank you.
