Make A Difference

As with so many arts organisations, the income we receive from ticket sales only covers a fraction of our costs. Everything we do – whether in the concert hall or in the community – is only made possible thanks to the incredible generosity of our friends and supporters.

Over the next five years, our goal is to double the number of London concerts, provide more debuts for exciting new artists, and extend our community outreach programme, LCO Music Junction – all by the time of our Centenary in 2021.

You can help us realise these bold and ambitious plans by making a secure online donation. Every contribution, however modest, makes a huge difference.

And, if you would like an even closer association with LCO, why not consider supporting us on a regular basis. Doing so not only gives you ‘behind-the-scenes’ access to the orchestra, it also helps us plan with confidence for the future.

Support as an individual

For less than £5 a week you could join the LCO Supporters and gain privileged insights into the life of the orchestra, as well as advance access to premium tickets.

From £100 per month, you could sponsor an LCO Chair – and enjoy a range of opportunities for getting closer to the orchestra, including invitations to rehearsals and private events.

And for those of you who want to make a more significant investment into the life of the orchestra, you could consider joining our Chairman’s Club from £2,500 per year, or our Music Director’s Circle from £10,000 per year.
