We continue to grow and thrive through the generosity of our supporters, without which the OAE would not exist. Our work includes our ambitious season of concert performances, digital productions on OAE Player, improving access to music through our Education programme, and our community work at Acland Burghley School. In return for your support we offer you a front-row and behind-the-scenes view of our work so that you can see the impact that your donations really make.
Income from ticket sales, touring and public funding only covers 70% of our running costs, so we need to raise over £1,000,000 each year to plug the gap. We hope you can feel proud of the meaningful contribution you make when you become a supporter of the OAE, whether as an individual or an organisation. With your help, we can keep the music playing.
US taxpayers are invited to support the OAE through Network For Good – please do contact the OAE Development Team (0208 159 9317) if you would like to discuss this before making a donation
The 2022-2023 Season marks 25 years since the foundation of the OAE Benevolent Fund, a unique charity that provides support for players of the OAE. To mark 25 years of the Fund, we are inviting Friends, Patrons, and audience members to support this valuable safety net for our players.
"It has always been a huge pleasure to get to know our donors. The OAE seems unusually blessed in attracting interesting, passionate music-lovers whose support and commitment enriches our own musical experience."
The Orchestra thrives on building partnerships with charitable trusts and statutory organisations. These relationships help us to design and deliver an education and outreach programme that is bespoke and adaptable to meet the needs of participants.
We continue to grow and thrive through the generosity of our supporters. We are very grateful to our sponsors and patrons, and hope you will consider joining them. We offer a close involvement in the life of the Orchestra with many opportunities to meet players, attend rehearsals and even accompany us on tour.
