There are many ways to support the Northern Chamber Orchestra. Our Friends and Patrons provide key support to the Orchestra, its concerts and its work in schools and care homes.

Whilst acknowledging how far the Northern Chamber Orchestra has come and what it has achieved in that time, our ambitions for the future gather pace: continuing to develop exciting and diverse concert programming, featuring superb soloists, along with inspiring learning and community initiatives that connect people of all ages to classical music and its potential to enrich lives.
