Join our Principal Players Circle

Help secure the Orchestra’s standard of excellence and support a Section Principal within WNO Orchestra.

WNO Orchestra has a reputation as a world-class ensemble.  In addition to providing the soundtrack to the Company’s opera performances, they also perform a vast programme of orchestral engagements across Wales, England and abroad.

The Orchestra can regularly be heard at BBC Cardiff Singer of the World, Welsh Proms, and at prestigious festivals around the world, this alongside the Company’s various community programmes.

In return for your generous support, you will receive:

  • regular updates on orchestral activity

  • the opportunity to build a meaningful relationship with the musician occupying your Principal Chair

Support starts from £125 per month.  You can join the Principal Players Circle online or to discuss other ways of becoming part of the Principal Players Circle, please contact Sally Ann Bird on or 02920 635 015.
