Sponsors & Business Partners

The orchestra values its links with the community and partnerships with local organisations are important to us. For a small annual fee a business can become part of supporting our children and youth in producing high quality music. Free entrance to concerts and advertising in programmes and on our website are then available to our partners. If you would like to know more about how to become a business partner then please contact Jenny Diprose.
