Become a Friend or Patron

Friends of The Swan is a dedicated group of supporters that make a vital contribution to funding our artistic programming, our work with students at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, in schools and in care homes.  Friends also help as volunteers at concerts, in the office and with the Orchestra’s community work.

Becoming a Friend and paying a modest annual subscription is an affordable way to get involved across the whole range of everything we do.

As a Patron, you will be a major donor at one of 5 levels (from £132 to £5,500) with the ability to ‘Adopt a section player’, ‘Adopt a Principal Player’, support Artistic Director Dave Le Page or support a guest conductor.

And don’t forget to tick the Gift Aid box. If you are a UK taxpayer, your annual subscription will benefit from Gift Aid, increasing the value of your support by 25%.
