Their support brings extraordinary repertoire, exciting artists to venues across the South and South West. They champion the brightest and best new talent on the classical music scene. Beyond the concert hall, they support trail-blazing work to change lives through music, tackling loneliness, disadvantage and discrimination.
Those giving at higher levels can get even more closely involved, enjoying privileged access to artists, musicians and the BSO team, along with invitations to experience community projects in action.
Please note: due to the current restrictions resulting from COVID-19, this Season’s events are only available as a digital experience. We hope you will enjoy this new way of sharing in the life of the Orchestra.
Being a Performance Champion enables me to say 'thank you' for the rich, musical impact that the BSO has made on my life from school days until retirement.
