We are currently offering opportunities to sponsor an NCO player’s chair for a season. 

This is an opportunity for you to support the NCO financially whilst also associating yourself with your chosen player. Your support will help us to continue to develop artistically and ensure that we are able to retain our world class musicians.

Player’s ‘Chair’ Sponsorship benefits are:

  • Sponsor acknowledgement inside the programmes alongside the name of the sponsored NCO player.
  • Two complimentary tickets and programmes to two NCO Macclesfield concerts of the sponsor’s choice, along with the opportunity to enjoy a post-concert drink with members of the NCO.

To find out more about sponsoring an NCO player’s ‘chair’, contact NCO’s General Manager, Tom Elliott on Tel: 0161 247 2220 or email: tom@ncorch.co.uk
