Global Friends

Global community

Of the 120+ concerts presented by the Concertgebouworkest each year, no less than 40 occur outside of the Netherlands. We are truly an international orchestra. There is a broad community of dedicated supporters from around the world who play a major role in our continued growth and success. Beside the enjoyment of knowing the impact of your donation, donors can receive membership in our giving programs—each with its own exclusive privileges.

Gifts with Impact

The gifts made by our international donors directly support the most critical activities of the orchestra. Those include: acquiring instruments, youth programs including Concertgebouworkest Young & the Academy of the Concertgebouworkest, international tours, special projects.
