I still can’t believe I’m holding this exquisite violin.

Becoming a donor 

Experience the orchestra up close 

The musicians making up the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra have been moving audiences all over the world with their beautiful music since 1888. In order to ensure the quality of the orchestra for generations to come, support from the private sector is vital, particularly in these difficult economic times. Donors in the Netherlands and in other countries provide support to the orchestra by helping it purchase high-quality instruments and develop young talent, music education and special, innovative concerts.

As a donor, you will experience the orchestra up close. Every donation is highly appreciated. Did you know that you can now take advantage of even more tax benefits when you make a donation? Those individuals making a regular donation of at least €1,250 a year will automatically become a member of the Golden Guild, a special group of orchestra lovers who enjoy a range of privileges. Through a dedicated newsletter and exclusive receptions, members of the Golden Guild are brought into direct contact with the people and the music of the orchestra. They are also given the opportunity to travel with the orchestra on tour and are given priority for pre-booking subscription and single tickets to concerts.
