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. These donations help support our endeavour 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: our efforts were recognised in March 2023 when we won the Students’ Guild’s 'community award'. 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: ultimately, our goal is to keep membership costs as low as possible, so that our orchestras are accessible to everybody, not just 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 access to concert photos, and you will also be able to reserve chosen seats for the concerts of that academic year by emailing symphonyorchestra@groups.exeterguild.com.​

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 by clicking the button below:

     You will then be sent a link to a Google Drive where all concert photos and newsletters will be uploaded throughout the year. Please let us know by emailing 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!
