Support Us

The Oxford University Orchestra provides an opportunity for the University’s top musicians to play challenging and exciting repertoire with a variety of exceptional professional conductors and soloists. For only a small donation you could help support us in this activity. Ticket sales alone are unable to cover the cost of any concert so it is thanks to the generous support of the University’s Music Faculty, corporate sponsors and people like you we are able to continue to put on the ambitious concerts the orchestra is famous for. In the current financial climate, as corporate sponsorship becomes increasingly difficult to acquire we rely ever more on your donations.
