Friends receive 15% discount for a single ticket per concert (Oxford Philomusica promotions only). Joint Friends can buy two discounted tickets per concert. Patrons receive 20% discount on all tickets.
Membership is an annual subscription (you may join the scheme in any month).
Friends and Patrons are welcome to join us for a complimentary glass of wine/mineral water, alongside the opportunity to meet our players, during the interval at Sheldonian concerts.
An extraordinary opportunity for Patrons to hear the Orchestra live in rehearsal at the Sheldonian Theatre, on the afternoon of a concert.
We hold exclusive events for our members throughout the year - these events vary in format to coincide with the Orchestra's schedule. Past events have included pre-concert drinks receptions, post-concert receptions after chamber concerts (catered by Raymond Blanc OBE) and Friends Evenings at Oxford Colleges that comprise of a performance and talk from an OP player and dinner. Additional charge
A delicious post-concert buffet dinner, exclusive to our Friends, Patrons and sponsors, is regularly held after Sheldonian concerts in the beautiful surrounds of an Oxford College. Additional charge.
