By becoming a Friend of the FSO you are helping us to continue to perform exciting programmes of live music, attract world-class soloists and play a broad range of repertoire. Without your support the FSO would simply not have the resources to do this. Our Friends’ donations allow us to hire music that is still in copyright, not to stint on extras, perform in professional-standard music venues, and much more. All our Friends can pick up their complimentary programmes and tickets from a dedicated welcome desk at our concerts and are invited to occasional drinks receptions when we celebrate FSO milestones.
