Chair Sponsorship

NYOS orchestra map

You can enjoy a personal commitment to your favourite instrument, or perhaps give a gift to a music-loving friend, through sponsoring a chair. At the same time, you can help support the UK’s only national youth organisation providing musical education in both classical and jazz.

For as little as £200 annually, you can feel part of a NYOS orchestra. Annual student membership of NYOS can cost up to £2,700. With your help, we can give young musicians the chance to benefit from a NYOS education and experience. 

Benefits of Chair Sponsorship include:

  • Invitation to all interval receptions
  • Annual Season Brochure and quarterly newsletter 
  • Invitation to the annual NYOS Chair Sponsors’ party 
  • Preview of following season 
  • The chance to meet the student on your chair*
  • The chance to attend behind-the-scenes events and occasional rehearsals*
  • Acknowledgement in NYOS concert programmes and on the NYOS website

*depending on level of giving

Sponsor a named chair in the Symphony or Jazz Orchestra from £500
Sponsor any other chair in the Symphony Orchestra from £200
