Patrons

Your donation as a Patron: €1.500 per year

Patrons love to share their passion for classical music. Once a year, they and their partner or invitee are guests of the Concertgebouworkest at the annual Opening Night, a gala concert complete with dinner buffet at The Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. They are invited to special musical events, such as orchestra rehearsals and receptions and dinners given in conjunction with concerts performed in their countries of residence. A chamber music concert given by members of the orchestra or Academy members or a musical lunch are also included.

The Concertgebouworkest is appreciative of the generous philanthropic support of donors from across the world. The orchestra performs no less than forty performances outside of the Netherlands annually. Our global community continues to grow with the partnerships and support of our donors. Our donors endorse the orchestra through various means and impact levels. Possible avenues for support include one-time or periodic donations, the sale of stock, establishing named funds to address specific needs or projects, legacy gifts through estate planning and more. Beside the enjoyment of knowing the impact of their donation to the orchestra, donors receive membership in our giving programmes – each with its own exclusive benefits. The programmes are detailed on the following pages. Members engage with our thriving international community at concerts and other activities organized by the Concertgebouworkest. Additionally, the orchestra organises unique experiences through partnerships with volunteer committees for its admirers living all over the world, the Global Friends in Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the United States and numerous other locations.
