Friends

By supporting the orchestra, you are helping to ensure it can continue high standards of performance with inspiring conductors and world-renowned soloists.

Conductors and other artists have come to view Brandon Hill Chamber Orchestra as one of the best amateur orchestras in the country. The orchestra gives three concerts a year in the beautiful venue of St George’s, near Park Street, bringing together the best musicians in the area who are willing to commit their time and effort for no financial return to create events of high quality with varying programmes.

Funding

The orchestra is funded through members’ subscriptions, ticket sales, Friends’ subscriptions and the generous support of The Paragon Trust, but is constantly seeking more funding.
