Officials, Friends & Patrons

Here is a list of the orchestra's Officials, the Committee, our President, Vice-Presidents and our Friends & Patrons

The Orchestra Committee and President are elected by the members at each Annual General Meeting.  A Vice-President is an honour given to someone to whom the orchestra wishes to express special appreciation and is an appointment that is given for life.

Our Friends are people who choose to support the orchestra by paying an annual donation in return for certain benefits, including a discounted ticket to each of our concerts.

Our Patrons can either be individuals or Companies who offer their financial support to the Orchestra by way of sponsorship, in return for certain benefits e.g. complimentary tickets and advertising, in proportion to the package chosen.

If you would like to become a Friend or Patron of the Orchestra, see ‘Join us’.
