Aurora patrons

Box office revenue and commercial income can only ever cover part of the cost involved in delivering Aurora’s adventurous artistic programme, and ensuring that our work remains accessible to a broad and diverse national audience.

‘The most bracing breath of fresh air to invigorate the British classical music scene in the past ten years.” (Richard Morrison, The Times)

Aurora’s success has been founded on the generosity of its supporters. Philanthropic gifts from individuals, companies and trusts and foundations are the lifeblood of Aurora’s activity, enabling us to continue to deliver world-class programmes which innovate and take artistic risks, and to extend their impact through audience development and schools programmes.

The pages in this section illustrate the many ways in which individual and organisational donors support our programme. If you would like to become involved in helping the orchestra at any level, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
