Friends of the Orchestra Scheme

Our ‘Friends of EUS(W)O scheme is an opportunity for friends, family, alumni and supporters to donate to the orchestra to help support our endeavor to provide the students at the University of Exeter with high quality musical training and experience as well as the opportunity to meet like-minded students during their time at university. We also do a lot of community work, having won the Students’ Guild’s ‘community award’ in March 2023. This includes visiting schools, care homes and hospitals to bring music to those who may not always have the opportunity to engage in classical music, as well as using our performances to raise money for important charities.

Running EUSO and EUSWO certainly isn’t cheap, yet we want to keep our membership costs as low as we can to make our orchestras accessible to as many people as possible and not just provide opportunities to those who can afford it. Therefore, we would be really grateful for any extra support we can receive.

Becoming a ‘friend’ of the orchestras for a year involves making a donation towards the costs of the society and receiving benefits in return.

By donating £1-£9.99, you will receive access to the concert photos at the end of each term during the year, and these may sometimes be sent as part of a newsletter with updates on the orchestras, future concert dates, etc.

By donating £10-19.99, you will receive these photos and you will also be able to reserve chosen seats for the concerts that year by emailing

By donating £20 or more, you will receive the photos, seat reservations and your name will be printed in the next programmes during that year to recognise your support (programmes are usually printed halfway through each term).

You can sign up and donate to the scheme through this link:

You will then be sent a link to a Google Drive where all concert photos and newsletters will be uploaded throughout the year. Feel free to email us if you do not receive this!

We thank you in advance for your help- your support really does make such a difference to us!
