BECOME A FRIEND
As a registered charity which does not receive any regular funding, ESO relies on the generosity of its supporters. By becoming a Friend of ESO you will be helping to secure the future of the Orchestra, enabling us to continue to offer exciting programmes under our dynamic Music Director, bringing world class soloists to Chelmsford and expanding our special projects aimed at children and young people, supporting and inspiring the next generation of performers and audiences.
There are a number of Friends levels through which supporters will be the first to hear news of our concerts, receive exclusive ‘behind the scenes’ content and special invitations, bringing you closer to the Orchestra and its personnel. By choosing the Gift Aid option your donation will be further enhanced, at no extra cost to you.
