Donating to the Orchestra
It is through the generosity of our supporters that we can continue to bring the joy and splendour of Baroque music to audiences around the world, on stage and online. Any amount you can give has an impact. Donations provide vital funding, sustaining our operations and enabling us to engage the very best specialist Australian musicians to produce the thrilling world-class concerts that our audiences love.
At the Brandenburg we are a family. As a supporter of the orchestra, we welcome you into a community of those passionate about Baroque music and the preservation of its history and cultural impact.
Annual Giving donations are at the core of philanthropy at the Brandenburg and support the company’s day-to-day operations. Annual Giving donations directly support our talented musicians and provide us with the capacity to stage world-class performances of Baroque and early music for audiences across the country.
Ticket sales do not cover all the costs of running Australia’s national Baroque orchestra and it is through the generosity of donors that we are able to fulfil our mission of delivering inspiring performances.
All donations make a difference. Please consider donating today and join a community of like-minded supporters who are passionate about Baroque and early music and want to make a difference.
Major Giving Programs
In addition to our annual giving donations, the Brandenburg has several philanthropic funds that contribute towards specific areas of the orchestra’s work. Our legacy as Australia’s national Baroque orchestra is able to live on thanks to your generosity.
Our Orchestral Chairs program enables us to continue to engage the very best period musicians from around Australia. By joining our Orchestral Chairs program, you are directly subsidising the costs associated with your chosen chair of the orchestra. Our Orchestral Chair supporters recognise and celebrate exceptional Australian creative talent and the importance of supporting professional career opportunities for specialist musicians in this country.
Our Chairman’s 11 members share a collective passion for artistic excellence and innovation and are committed to supporting the very best musicians and artists from around the world. Chairman’s 11 supporters enable us to continue to showcase world-class guest artists on our stage, many who perform for the first time in Australia with the Brandenburg.
The Brandenburg Foundation
Donations to the Brandenburg Foundation support the future of the company and of Baroque music in Australia. By building funds in the Foundation, we can protect the company by providing insurance against future economic uncertainty to ensure a vibrant future for the company for many generations to come. The Brandenburg Foundation is a separate entity to the orchestra and has its own Board of Directors. With your support, we can ensure that the Brandenburg continues to play an important role in Australia’s cultural life for generations to come.
Leave a Lasting Gift
If our concerts have brought musical joy to your life, perhaps you would consider including the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra in your Will thereby helping us share the thrill of Baroque for many generations to come.
We understand that your loved ones will always come first but a gift of any size to the orchestra can make a significant and lasting difference. Every contribution – large or small – will bring pleasure to music-lovers, enable us to realise extraordinary projects and help shape the Orchestra’s future.
