Charity description

Ulster Orchestra Society logo
For fifty years the Ulster Orchestra has been at the forefront of musical life in Northern Ireland. Founded in 1966, the Orchestra’s sixty-three full-time musicians from the region’s only professional symphony orchestra and celebrated its 50th anniversary in the 2016/17 season.
With a mission to enrich the lives of people living in Northern Ireland, those visiting, and those who encounter it through international touring and regular radio and TV broadcasts with both BBC Northern Ireland and BBC Radio 3, the Orchestra strives for excellence in all it undertakes, be it regular concert performances, learning and community engagement programmes, or creative collaborations across the arts.

Would you like to get behind-the-scenes access to the Ulster Orchestra, be involved with our work, performance and players?

To play your part in the future of the Orchestra, join the Patrons’ Society by making a donation. We create exciting opportunities for our Patrons to engage with all aspects of our work and performances, generating a unique insight into the organisation and building a connection with musicians and staff. We recognise the invaluable role Patrons play in helping to secure the future of the Orchestra supporting both our concert programmes and allowing us to further our Learning and Community Engagement work, bringing orchestral music to those who would otherwise have no contact with it.

With your help the Ulster Orchestra will continue to deliver world-class music to audiences and communities across Northern Ireland for generations to come.
