NCO PATRON | £1,000 per annum

As an NCO Patron, you can help us achieve our vision of making NCO more affordable and accessible to children from all backgrounds.  The benefits you can enjoy as an NCO Patron include:

  • Two best-house complimentary tickets to each NCO public concert, including three free programmes per annum;
  • Two invitations to all NCO Friends events;
  • Two invitations to see one private NCO rehearsal;
  • Acknowledgement on our website and programmes;
  • The NCO Supporter E-Newsletter, alongside bespoke personal updates from the NCO team.


We believe that musical learning should be open to all children and young people, regardless of their background. As a Financial Support Patron, you will cover the full membership for one child who might not otherwise be able to accept their place at NCO to explore their musical creativity and fulfil their potential.  Your donation would be restricted for use only as financial support.  As a thank you, we will ensure you have opportunity to see the child or children in rehearsals to see the impact of your support, first-hand.

PRINCIPAL PATRON | £5,000 per annum

Help us ensure that NCO children work with the brightest musical talent by supporting the Conductor’s Circle.  With your help, we will secure the most exceptional conductors to mentor, inspire and lead our orchestras every year.  Joining the circle will also provide you with:

  • Four best-house complimentary tickets to each public NCO concert;
  • Four invitations for you and your guests to a pre-concert reception to meet our guest conductors;
  • Plus all the benefits of an NCO Patron.
