The importance of donations

The cost of presenting large scale musical works, is very considerable. Although Oxford Symphony Orchestra members pay subscriptions our concerts are not self-financing.

Our aim to inspire and entertain, to enhance classical musical opportunities in Oxford through rehearsal and performance of large symphonic works, is therefore founded on the support and generosity of volunteers, players, our soloists and other professionals.

We are especially grateful for the assistance we receive from individual donors.

How you can help

We operate on a tight budget so quite modest regular or once-off financial donations make a real difference.

£25 provides a presentation bouquet for a soloist
£100 provides a bursary to meet the cost of a subsidised student player annual subscription
£150 can cover the hire cost of a set of orchestral parts
