How can I support the CSO?

The Croydon Symphony Orchestra is an amateur orchestra of strong local importance. For many years it has provided a central focus for amateur musicians from South London who are keen to be involved with a hard-working, fun and successful orchestra. The membership of the orchestra covers a wide range of ages. All players are committed to making music as successfully as they possibly can.

This commitment, however, cannot be fulfilled without some cost. The orchestra has to find the funds to pay for hall hire, music hire, and to pay their leader, conductor and soloists……


Patrons of the Orchestra

The objectives of the Society are to engage in the promotion and presentation of concerts of the highest musical value and to encourage the study and practice of music by means of grants and prizes.

Patronage of the Orchestra is open to all and thus gives music lovers an opportunity to support the aims of the Society. We welcome members of the public to join this scheme and become more closely associated with the Society and its objectives. Patrons are acknowledged in our concert programmes with their consent.

The principal benefit is a big discount on the normal ticket price. All we ask is that you purchase one or more tickets for each of the season’s three main concerts (Nov/Feb/June). At current prices, a set of single tickets for the season costs £45 instead of £51*; a pair of tickets £90 instead of £102*. No other subscription is involved and you can join later in the season at proportionally smaller rates (£33 for Feb and June see below).

* including transaction fees
