The CCSO greatly values the relationship we have with the Friends of CCSO and the support they provide. The CCSO Friends Scheme offers regular concertgoers a considerable discount on the price of tickets as well as a free programme for each concert. In addition, if you have a favourite seat, we will reserve it for you. 

Robert Arnold, a member of the CCSO Friends Scheme, said in May 2015 “I very much like the way that the programmes are put together too – the connections between the items make it all all much more interesting. The programme notes are always entertaining and informative and indeed they contribute much to the whole experience. So well done CCSO – keep it up! I am proud to be a Friend.”

Sponsorship Opportunities

The orchestra is a charitable body which offers audiences a stimulating, enjoyable and regular series of high quality concerts. To assist its ongoing development and to help it to plan ahead confidently, the orchestra is now looking to attract private funding from organisations that are interested in supporting the performing arts in Cambridge.

In return, the orchestra can offer sponsors a number of benefits. These include:

  • Prominent acknowledgement of the sponsor’s support at concerts, in programmes and in publicity material
  • Opportunities for joint advertising and promotion
  • Association with the aims of the orchestra, including supporting young talented professional musicians and enthusiastic and hard-working amateurs and enlivening the musical life of Cambridge through regular concerts
  • Appropriate allocation of tickets at concerts
  • The opportunity to entertain invited guests and consolidate links with the musicians at a private reception on the night of the concert
