The Horsham Symphony Orchestra has been active since 1971. Members are all local people who play for pleasure. To achieve high standards in our performance and in our choice of soloists we are professionally directed and led. Unfortunately our costs cannot be funded entirely from box office receipts and we are fortunate indeed to receive financial support from our two generous Patrons. Other revenue most importantly comes from our members who pay for the privilege of playing in the Orchestra. However even this is still insufficient to balance the books.
We therefore invite those who support our aims and share our enthusiasm for the performance of classical music in Horsham to become Friends of the Horsham Symphony Orchestra.
To be a Friend of the HSO we ask for a contribution of £34 (£30 for OAP's) annually. You can join at any time and we will provide you with a free seat of your choice at two of the three concerts within the calendar year of your joining. We guarantee that you may purchase a seat at the third concert within the same year.
Our seat prices for our concerts at The Capitol are £14 (£12 for concessions) so your friendly contribution will be supporting us to the tune of £6 annually. If you are unable to come to a particular concert you may give the ticket to someone else. We will include your name, should you agree, in our printed programmes to acknowledge your support.
If you would like to become a Friend, or simply learn more about the scheme, please contact the HSO ticket secretary or complete the form which is included in each of our concert programmes.
